A Ro-Ro (Roll-on/roll-off) vessel was chartered for the express purpose of carrying a full load of buses at the Port of Paranaguá for the first time. This week, the Ulusoy 5 carried 130 passenger vehicles to Luanda, Angola.  It docked on July 27, at berth 215.

The operation was carried out by Marcon, the main vehicle and general cargo operator at Paranaguá. The vessel docked at around 6 am, loaded for around six hours, and set sail the same day at 7 pm. The buses were purchased by the Angolan Ministry of Transport from Marcopolo.  Under the coordination of Asperbras, the vehicles were manufactured at the company’s unit in Caxias, in Rio Grande do Sul. In the past three years, the Marcopolo/Asperbras partnership has resulted in more than 600 units being exported to the Angolan market
