North-South Railway: why invest in this project?

North-South Railway: why invest in this project?

The North-South Railway (EF-151) was qualified in the Investment Partnerships Program (PPI) at the 1st Meeting of the PPI Council, on September 13, 2016.

Designed to become the backbone of rail transportation in Brazil, the project proposes the sub-concession of a stretch of 1,537 km, linking Estrela d’Oeste, São Paulo, to Porto Nacional, in the state of Tocantins. The purpose is to enable a strategic integration of the national territory and contribute to reducing the logistical cost of cargo transportation in the country.

According to the National Logistics Plan (PNL), prepared by the Brazilian Enterprise for Planning and Logistics (EPL), subordinated to the PPI, railway account for 18% of cargo handling in Brazil. The estimate for 2025 is 33%, a significant leap for the sector. This shows the importance of investments in the railways of Brazil to increase the ability for crop flow, reduce risks to producers, and improve the business environment.

Status of the project – Currently, the National Land Transportation Agency (ANTT) is working on consolidating contributions for the publication of the Final Public Hearing Report. Following that, the draft agreement and tender documents will be submitted to the Court of Audit of the Federal Government (TCU) and await the agreement of this agency. ANTT will then make the necessary adjustments and publish the public notice and date of the public sale.
