  • Currently, most of the port's operations are steel exports by the CSN company (Companhia Siderurgica Nacional) - country;s largest steel producer in terms of crude steel production (over 5,6 million tons annual capacity).
  • The port's current importance is, in part, also due to the ferry terminal facility, as well as its harbour, used by TEBIG Petrobras for oil shipping in large quantities. This way, the port is positioned as one of the country's largest and busiest.
  • Nowadays, due to its perfect beaches and nearby resort regions, Angra dos Reis has become a major domestic tourism point.
