Saik’s Agri-Treks: Fertilizer Movement on the Port of Paranaguá

We’re about to embark on our third adventure in Brazil with Rob Saik, host of Agri-Treks and founder of Agri-Trend. We’ve explored Brazil’s Carnaval celebrations in São Paulo and Rio De Jainero, the favelas in Rio and now, we will experience the Port of Paranaguá.

Located in the state of Paraná, the Port of Paranaguá has a long history, dating back to colonial times, as it was through Paranaguá that settlers first arrived into the state. Now, the port has an incredible role, as one of the world’s most important sea trade centres. 

In this video, Saik takes us from Curitiba, Paraná’s capital, to the port, where fertilizer (among other commodities) is moved from sea to land. Besides a visual look at the infrastructure there, a few of the Agri-Treks tour-participants provide us with their key learnings, including some of the rather-relatable challenges in transportation and logistics.
