The parts that supply Mercedes-Benz of Brazil arrive via sea.
After the ship is docked, and the authorities issue the unloading permission, the containers are transferred to a segregated are in the Port of Rio de Janeiro, which is operated by Multiterminais. As they are being handled, the procedures for the emission of the DTA (Declaração de Trânsito Aduaneiro) are initiated for posterior loading onto railroad transport, or in the case of critical containers, via road transport. The average time for this operation, from the moment they arrive at the port to the moment the container arrives at Juiz de Fora is 3 to 4 business days if they go via railroad. If they are shipped via road, the container can arrive 8 hours earlier.
