ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the new port law of Brazil passed in 2013 under the term of President Dilma Rouseff. It assesses negative effects of the law on terminals, particularly those operating at Port Santos, reluctance of container terminals to invest in new equipment and new berths because of alleged uncertainties in the law and competition from private greenfield operations. It also discusses concerns raised by industry associations such as ABTP and Abratec.
