Supreme standards

In 2003, Aliança was recognized as 'the best transport and logistics company in Brazil' by both Exame magazine, and the financial newspaper Valor Econômico. In the same year, we gained ISO 9001/2000 certification, acknowledging a standard of operational service long recognized by the market.

A picture of success

Apart from offering the region's most comprehensive South America coverage, Aliança is actively engaged in many key international trades including the Caribbean, North America, Europe and the Far East.

Our client portfolio includes many leaders in the most dynamic sectors of the Brazilian economy, including the automotive, chemicals, food and lumber industries.

Aliança's strong, steady growth is due to increases in both our cabotage and international business. Through new investments in our container terminals, truck fleet, and logistics service expansion and with the strengthening of international liftings, our current cargo forecast of 270,000 teus will yield gross income in the order of US$ 380 million.

Coastal shipping

Cabotage is presently expected to contribute up to 35% of our total earnings. Our coastal service coverage spans a total of 13 Brazilian ports: Rio Grande (RS), Itajaí (SC), São Francisco do Sul (SC), Paranaguá (PR), Santos (SP), Sepetiba (RJ), Rio de Janeiro (RJ), Salvador (BA), Suape (PE), Fortaleza (CE), Pecém (CE), Belém (PA) and Manaus (AM).

International trades

The balance of our revenues is derived from our Mercosur (Southern Zone Common Market) and long-distance services to the United States, Europe, Chile, Peru, the Gulf of Mexico and the Far East.
