The first loaded vessel has departed Archer Daniels Midland Company’s (ADM) new export terminal in Barcarena, in the northern Brazilian state of Pará.

ADM explains that the terminal is a significant addition to ADM’s expanding logistical network in Brazil, and offers an efficient pathway for the export of grain from the increasingly productive western and northern regions of the country. ADM received approval to begin operations at the terminal at the end of July 2014.

“We are pleased to see operations underway at our new terminal in Barcarena,” said Valmor Schaffer, president, ADM South America. “This terminal positions ADM to continue to grow hand in hand with Brazil’s expanding agricultural production, particularly in the country’s highly productive northern and western regions.”

ADM acquired the terminal in 2012. It currently has the capacity to handle approximately 1.5 million metric tons of grain on an annual basis; ADM intends to expand the terminal’s capacity to 6 million tons by 2016.

“The Barcarena terminal builds on our existing network, which uses inland waterways, rail, and truck transportation to move crops and products throughout Brazil,” Schaffer added. “We are excited by the opportunities presented by Brazil’s expanding agricultural production, and look forward to continuing to be a part of the country’s success.”
