By the land or by the sea, we seek an increasingly safe and sustainable path.

We created a logistics network that is part of mines, railroads, ships and ports, ensuring agility and efficiency during transportation. In addition to our products, we carry cargo to third parties and offer two passenger train lines in Brazil.

We are present in about 2,000 kilometers of railroad network in Brazil. 

The passenger train makes our direct connection with the communities. Thousands of people are transported annually by the Vitória-Minas Railroad and by the Carajás Railroad.
