The recurrent truck congestions around the Port of Santos, made worse by the current record grain harvest, have exposed bottlenecks in accessing the Right Bank, especially in Alemoa, Santos. However, the situation extends to the port’s Left Bank in Guarujá. The authorities are attempting to resolve long-standing problems.
The roads leading to the Left Bank are good, but the condition of the access roads used by vehicles leaving the highway is sub-optimal. Additionally, there’s a lack of security for truck drivers. They face daily robberies on the highway due to being stationary while waiting to enter the terminals.
