Thursday, 21 November 2019 | 20:00

Santos Port Authority (SPA) published on Monday (18th) the list of winning offers to provisionally explore three areas on the Saboó pier, on the right bank of the Port of Santos. The companies Brasil Terminal Portuário (BTP), Santos Brasil and Set Port presented the best final proposals, which, together, will yield R$ 1,182,380.00 to SPA as a minimum monthly remuneration – a high of almost 152% over what they originally offered.

Six companies competed for at least one of the three transitional lease areas available today in Saboó with offers made in late October and early November. According to the public notice, the competitors could submit a single final offer on Wednesday (13th), and they did so.

BTP gave the best bid for area 1, of R$ 215,940, a 103% increase over its initial proposal, to handle general cargo (containers, vehicles and breakbulk). For the exploration of area 2, Santos Brasil offered an increase of 188%, totaling R$ 713,000.00, and will use the space for cellulose and vehicles. And for the operation of area 3, the company Set Port offered R$ 253,440.00, an increase of 119.4%. Set Port proposed to move solid bulk and general cargo; It is the only one of the three not yet operating leases in the Port of Santos. The companies must submit qualification documents within five business days. Full proposals can be found on the SPA website at the links at the end of the text.

The offers were submitted under the Simplified Selection Process Notice for tenant selection, launched in September by SPA to make use of vacant areas until the respective bidding processes for long term leases are concluded or for a maximum of 180 days – whichever occur first.

“It was a groundbreaking process that proved successful in combining maximizing compensation for SPA, broad competition, and ensuring continued port service. This is the mentality of our management, focus on efficiency and competition”, says SPA CEO Casemiro Tércio Carvalho.

The simplified selection is foreseen in a resolution of the National Waterway Transportation Agency (Antaq) 2016. This is the first time that the SPA has used this instrument.
