Seaport of Itajai

The seaport of Itajai, with the code BRITJ, is the second largest container port in Brazil and the principal port in the state of Santa Catarina. It serves as the main port for exports in this region.

The maximum size of the ship that can enter this port is 152.4 meters in terms of length. A natural river flows through the Port of Itajai. It has a waterfront where it is possible to load and unload cargo. The port has railroad access. Ships are also repaired here, but only to a small extent and not that often. The port was built in the 19th century, and the first technical studies of this port were conducted as early as in 1905. The actual construction of this port began in 1914. At first, it was just the surroundings, like the administrative building which was built in 1977. The port was first used to export wood, but as demand fell for this material, the port went through a crisis and had to adapt to new conditions. Fortunately, it ended up coming out on top.
