The North Corridor has established itself as the best option for the flow of production in Brazil’s Midwest region and continues to expand every year. The Arco Norte (Northern Arc) ports continued to be the main logistics option for shipping grain originating in Mato Grosso, and accounts for 51% of the total volume exported in the year.

Hidrovias do Brasil is present in Arco Norte with the best structure for meeting its customers’ demand.
