The information presented in the figures was obtained from Brazil’s National Agency of Waterway Transportation (ANTAQ) databases. ANTAQ is responsible for regulating, supervising, and monitoring the activities of waterway transport services and port and waterway infrastructure operations. Two ANTAQ databases were consulted in April and May 2023: “Estatístico Aquaviário” [Waterway statistical panel], http://ea.antaq.gov.br/QvAJAXZfc/opendoc. htm?document=painel%5Cantaq%20-%20 anu%C3%A1rio%202014%20-%20v0.9.3.qvw&lang=pt- BR&host=QVS%40graneleiro&anonymous=true and “Navegação Marítima – Frota Geral – Analítica” [Maritime navigation – general fleet – analytics], http://web.antaq.gov.br/Portal/Frota/ ConsultarFrotaGeral.aspx.

Shipping companies’ websites were consulted, but when there were differences between the ANTAQ databases and companies’ reports, data from ANTAQ was prioritized. For example, there are differences between the container ship fleet data in ANTAQ’s databases and the information provided by the three EBNs on their websites. The information presented in this publication was from the ANTAQ database. For the general cargo fleet, we also found differences between ANTAQ data and companies’ websites. The ANTAQ database contains information about general cargo vessels that is mixed with barges that might not be operating in the general cargo sector. For example, although Tranship’s fleet is included in ANTAQ’s general cargo database, the company operates more in the oil and gas sector with open deck barges, according to its website.8

The ANTAQ database indicates that companies in the general cargo segment operate with open deck barges designed to transport special cargo rather than general cargo; some of these barges are associated with the oil and gas industry. Norsul’s website says that it operates in the general cargo segment with a fleet of barges and ocean pusher craft designed to transport cellulose and steel products.9 To be consistent with the other cabotage transport segments presented in this analysis, all data presented in the figures were obtained from ANTAQ database.

The ownership of the EBNs was sourced from the following:
