Santos management to be restructured

By the end of February, Brazil’s Ministry of Infrastructure will consider a proposal aimed at decentralising management of the Port of Santos

The Ministry will also look at the possibility to outsource management of dredging services in the port’s navigation channel.


A firm decision on both aspects is promised by the end of the year.

The proposals have been drafted by a parliamentary advisory council, which is made up of representatives of the port community, local mayors, politicians and trade unions, in addition to the National Federation of Port Operators (Fenop), the Brazilian Association of Terminals and Bonded Warehouses, (Abtra), the Santos Commercial Association (ACS), the Santos Youth Commercial Association (ACSJovem) and the Union of Port Operators of the State of São Paulo (Sopesp).


Under discussion is greater administrative autonomy for the Companhia Docas do Estado de São Paulo (Codesp), the state company that manages the port of Santos. If given the go-ahead, some tasks, such as the issuing of tenders, may come back in house.

Managerial oversight of dredging by the private sector has also been studied by the Ministry of Infrastructure, which fits into government policy towards ports of decentralisation.


Last month the Ministry nominated Casemiro Tércio Carvalho as the new CEO for Codesp. The organisation was hit last year by a bribery scandal.
