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.
