Importance: The main focus of the terminal in question is related to the transportation and storage of fuels, whose relevance to the world economy is undeniable and requires no further comment. According to the Master Plan, liquid bulk accounted for 55% of the volume transported in the complex in 2017. That year, around 300.000 tones of oil products were handled at the Port of Maceió, with the S-500 diesel being the main product operated. Likewise, ethanol has a major impact on operations, being responsible for handling 220.000 tones, especially for the coastal shipping. On the other hand, petroleum from onshore wells located in the state of Alagoas handled 163.000 tones (also 2017 data) through coastal shipping.
