Cattalini's physical structure is comprised of up of 116 tanks, divided into 4 tank farms connected to an independent pipeline system to enable the segregation and safety of stored products.
Following investments at the Port of São Francisco do Sul (SC) focused on the discharge of fertilizers and other solid bulk cargos, ROCHA sought to expand its presence in this port by joining with major local port operator companies. By joining assets and teams, since 2011, FullPort has been incorporated into the ROCHA group of companies.
Since 2013, ROCHA has held a corporate interest in Vanzin Port Operations S.A, the main import bulk port operator of the Rio Grande public port (RS). With differentiated assets and human capital employed on a day to day basis, Vanzin is recognized by its customers for its high level of service and efficiency.
In 2015, ROCHA expanded its presence to the port of Itaqui (MA), by purchasing a share in the port operator COPI. Currently one of the port's main operators, this expansion portrays ROCHA's constant search to increase its geographic presence, serving its customers from the north to the south of the country, in what are today the main Brazilian ports handling fertilizer cargos and other import bulk cargo operations.
