New opportunities in the Brazilian port sector

New local legislation has opened more room for private companies to participate in concessions in one of the largest port platforms in the world, representing a great opportunity for the global infrastructure industry.

The Brazilian port sector is facing an unprecedented time in its history, which offers exceptional opportunities to international market agents. New legislation in effect since the first half of 2013 has opened new perspectives for the participation of private companies in this market.

Under the new regulations, the prior model adopted by the port industry, called “Public landlord port,” is being replaced by the “Private landlord port” system that, unlike the prior mode, also provides for the participation of private agents in investments related to port infrastructure and administration, in addition to the areas of superstructure, equipment and operations. In practice, private companies can now participate, under a concessionary régime, in all investment fronts, except the ownership of occupied land and port assets.

Other changes also resulted from the new legislation, on the labor, operations and concessions fronts, among others – the large majority of them representing direct benefits to anyone interested in investing in the Brazilian port industry.
