Users' committee meeting with public, private sector to streamline port operations (Brazil)
Brazil's Sao Paulo state ports and airports users committee (Comus) has started holding itinerant meetings aimed at streamlining logistics operations at the state's Santos port, Comus executive coordinator Jose Candido Senna told BNamericas.


"By involving government agencies and the private sector, we intend to hold discussions that address problems such as cargo transport bottlenecks at the port," Senna said.


Comus is looking to work with government bodies such as the federal revenue department and national health inspection agency Anvisa, as well as private companies working with port support facilities such as dry docks and roads.


The committee also aims to hold discussions with private firms that are involved with traffic monitoring, cargo tracking and the operation of major highways such as Bandeirantes, Anhanguera, Anchieta and Imigrantes.


"Both the public and private sectors need to be more conscious of what's going on," Senna said.


Besides working to help improve the port sector, Comus is also looking to improve logistics in Sao Paulo state's airports, including Viracopos in Campinas city and Guarulhos international airport near state capital Sao Paulo.
