Our clients and operations are spread across the five continents. To integrate them, we make use of a network of modern, efficient ports and terminals, many of which are linked to our mines by railroads.
We have deep-draft ports, fully equipped to receive Valemax ships – the biggest mineral vessels in the world, each with capacity for 400,000 tonnes of ore. To operate in shallower ports, we have installed Floating Transfer Stations, where ore is moved from Valemax ships to smaller vessels.
This integrated logistics chain enables us to take fewer trips, primarily between Brazil and Asia, not only cutting costs and operating time but also reducing gas emissions.
We run port operations in Argentina, Brazil, Indonesia, Malaysia and Oman, also providing a cargo service to third parties. Find out more:
