A new cellulose terminal under construction in the port of Santos belonging to Eldorado Brasil Celulose is due to open by the end of May.  According to company president, Jose´ Carlos Grubisich, this will be a significant step forward for the company in terms of its competitiveness.

The export facility has been built at Paqueta´ on the former Warehouse XIII site, some 300 metres from the berths that it will use.

It will store cellulose produced at a production facility the company has at Tre^s Lagoas, arriving at the port by rail.
