In order to achieve the goal of transporting more freight by rail between Brazil’s largest cities, a standard logistics solution will be developed around three key terminals in Rio de Janeiro and Suzano and Itaquaquecetuba in São Paulo.

These three regions are strategic in terms of logistics because both Itaquaquecetuba and Suzano are part of the São Paulo Metropolitan Region and, therefore, offer easy capture of the freight coming from the largest industrial hub in Latin America.

The Tora terminal in the city of Rio de Janeiro will be fundamental not only for its privileged geographical location, but also because Tora has its own truck fleet for delivery and collection.

“One of our main focuses this year is to attract new customers and new freight to this route,” says Mr Guilherme Alvisi, MRS Logística general cargo manager.

“To carry more cargo on the Rio - São Paulo route, our solution in partnership with MRS will involve storage, collection, loading, unloading, delivery, cross docking and urban distribution - a true door-to-door solution for our customers,” says Tora CEO, Mrs Janaína Araújo.
