Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

The project consists in a 10-years senior loan, with up to 3-years grace period, for the financing of the port terminal facilities expansion of Terminal XXXIX de Santos S.A. (“T39”) located at the Port of Santos in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. Founded in 2001, T39 is owned in equal parts by Caramuru Alimentos S.A. (“Caramuru”) and Rumo S.A. (“Rumo”) (Rumo and Caramuru together, the “Sponsors”), representing a highly strategic asset for both Sponsors, who will also be participating as co-obligors of the transaction. Caramuru exports 90% of its products through T39, while Rumo transported most of its grain through T39.

The terminal expansion plan has the main objective of easing the flow of growing exports from Caramuru and other third parties, by increasing its warehousing capacity from 135,000 tons to 247,000 tons. After completing the project, T39 will be single largest grains terminal in Santos, with strong competitive advantages in terms of land infrastructure, berthing conditions, and logistics business integration. T39 will increase its volume handling from 2.5 million tons per year, to around 7.5 million tons per year, an important contribution to accommodate the increasing demand for export cargo handling in the Santos port. Rumo is Brazil’s largest logistics operator in terms of transported volume. It provides rail transport, port handling, and warehousing services. Rumo operates the largest railroad network in Brazil, consisting of five concessions with approximately 13,500 kilometers of lines, 1,200 locomotives and 33,000 wagons, as well as distribution centers and storage facilities.

Caramuru is a leading Brazilian grain processing company which engages in the processing, refining, and marketing of soybean related products, biodiesel, corn, and sunflower products in Brazil. It is among the top Brazilian exporters of soy.
