The Terminal of Grains of the state of Maranhão (Tegram), located in Itaqui port in the Northeastern state, has broke a new record in April with exports of eleven ships of loaded with grains. The total volume in the period was 726,500 metric tons. Considering the first four months of the year, there was a volume 0f 1.28 million metric tons exported of corn and soybeans. 
 
The importance of that terminal is to replace the overloaded ports of Santos (São Paulo), Paranaguá (Paraná), and Rio Grande (Rio Grande do Sul), which account for more than half of the total grain exports. The terminal is closer to Brazil’s major state producer of soybeans, Mato Grosso, than all of these locations.
