Giancarlo Nicastro, CEO of SiiLA Brasil, joined on the first day of FEIRA LOGVALE 2021 (RM Vale's Logistics and Foreign Trade Fair) on Wednesday, September 22nd.

Nicastro presented data and statistics on the logistics condominium sector in the State of São Paulo and the Vale do Paraíba region, which is part of the company's Market Analytics platform mapping tool.

As the occupancy rate in the region of Vale do Paraíba is still considered low (64%) compared to others in the state, the executive believes that the easy access of the municipalities part of the region to the international airport of São José dos Campos, the port Ayrton Senna and Presidente Dutra highways and the waterways, will be "the great lever for the Paraíba Valley to gain prominence in logistics".

"The data shows us how much the Paraíba Valley still has to grow. Recently, we were in the São José dos Campos mayor's office and visited the logistics warehouses in the region. We believe that there is a demand, which will emerge very quickly", said Nicastro.

"We have a port, good highways, an airport. In terms of infrastructure, we have everything ready and ready for this region to develop in terms of logistics." He concluded.
