In 2009, DP World and Odebrecht entered into a partnership to acquire a majority stake in Empresa Brasileira de Terminais Portuários (Embraport), the largest Brazilian private multi-modal port terminal.

Embraport operates in Porto de Santos, Brazil’s largest container terminal, 90 percent of whose cargo is destined for São Paulo, Brazil’s most populous city, some 80 kilometres away. The site boasts excellent road and rail connectivity.

Embraport has a capacity of 1.2 million TEU (twenty-foot equivalent units) and began operating in 2013.

Installed in a strategic area accessible by sea, road and railway, in its first phase, the enterprise includes 653 meters of docks and 207 thousand square meters of yard. The company’s aim is to consolidate itself as a “hub” (a connection point) at Santos Port for coastal and long haul shipping and become a reference in productivity and efficiency with added excellence in its operation. Furthermore, the company’s aim is to help reduce deficiencies in the port sector and to develop competitiveness in the country as well as creating jobs and revenue in the Santos area.
