It was a great pleasure to meet Antonio Passaro, CEO of BTP and his Sales Director, Claudio Oliveira. Antonio has left BTP now for other challenges. Thank you Antonio for welcoming us and for giving us a very sincere and honest view of your time at BTP.
BTP is one of the most modern and best equipped container terminals in Brazil and has perhaps one of the highest ocupancy rates in ECSA at the moment. Being located in Santos means one of its main challenges in recent times has been dredging in the port's access canal. Antonio was instrumental in the development of an initiative that aims to transfer dredging responsibility into private hands, in an attempt to bring greater reliability and efficiency to dredging operations.
