Services for the Community

Our community relations in the areas where we operate are fundamental to the sustainability of our operations. Consequently, we are investing in various initiatives to contribute to social and environmental development in the locations where we are present, and we offer services to meet communities’ demands and needs.

  • Passenger trains

    As well as transporting our minerals, two of our railways offer the most extensive passenger train services in the country: the Vitória-Minas Railway (EFVM) and Carajás Railway (EFC). EFVM operates Brazil’s only daily passenger train service to link two metropolitan regions: Cariacica (Espírito Santo) and Belo Horizonte (Minas Gerais). EFC connects the states of Maranhão and Pará, crossing 25 municipalities.
