São Paulo, February 16, 2017 - Triunfo Participações e Investimentos S.A. (TPIS3), a company with one of the strongest presences in Brazil’s infrastructure sector, announces its operational data.
Port Segment: container handling volume increased 9.9% from the same period in 2016, reaching 74,615 TEUs. This growth reflects the start of operations of a new line acquired by Portonave and the best performance of the five lines acquired in August 2015 and renewed in September 2016.
Highways Segment: total paying vehicle equivalents reached 15.9 million (-0.7%). The decline in vehicles at Econorte (-6.6%) was due to the increase in toll exemptions in the second half of 2016 at the Jacarezinho toll plaza.
Airport Segment: in January 2017, 9,900 aircraft (-3.0%) carrying over 903,000 passengers (+0.1%) and 14,300 tons of cargo (+40.0%) passed through Viracopos Airport.
The cargo volume was significantly higher than last year (+40.0%) due to the growth in imports. Cargo revenue historically accounts for over 50% of the total revenue of Viracopos. The decline in aircraft traffic is due to the cancellation of commercial flights by airline companies during the period.
