Santos Brasil and John Deere conclude Logistics contract


John Deere, one of the world´s largest agricultural and construction equipment manufacturers, is Santos Brasil´s new customer. The agreement strengthens the Company´s logistics expertise in the machinery sector, and involves all of its operations in the Baixada Santista region for both exports and imports of John Deere vehicles and parts.

According to the Santos Brasil Logistics Operations Commercial Director Wagner Toffoli, the partnership - which took one year to be concluded ¿ covers 100% of the import processes performed in the Port of Santos. ¿It is a robust contract, as it also adds other services including road transport and stowing export containers, offering the customer our full port to door concept¿, he says.

John Deere´s cargo comes mostly from the United States and Europe. Those imports arrive at Tecon Santos, where they are stored in the terminal itself or at Clia Santos - a Santos Brasil logistics unit of located off the Anchieta highway to São Paulo. The process ends with the cargo being transported to the John Deere units located in Campinas and Indaiatuba (São Paulo State) and Montenegro and Horizontina (Rio Grande do Sul State), on Santos Brasil¿s own road transportation fleet.

In export, Santos Brasil also stows parts of tractors, excavators, backhoes, loaders and other products in containers for later shipment. Assembled machinery is shipped on RoRo vessels from the Vehicle Terminal (TEV), which has been under the Company¿s administration since 2009 and today is the country¿s largest in this type of operation.

John Deere has been in the market for more than 175 years, has business in around 160 countries, and is listed on Fortune Magazine¿s ¿50 World¿s Most Admired Companies¿ ranking released in February this year. In 2016, it was voted the most innovative company in Brazil in the ¿Vehicles and Parts¿ category of the Valor Inovação award.

¿We believe that this relationship will enable us to improve cycle times and services provided. We must also emphasize that the implementation has been very well conducted, with all risks being mitigated¿, says John Deere Logistics Manager Marcos Roncari.

In June, Santos Brasil participated in one of the main Logistics events, the 2017 Worldwide Logistics Partner Conference, which takes place at the John Deere headquarters in Moline, Illinois, USA, and brings together the world´s leading logistics providers for getting to know their operational processes.
