Features: The Centro-Atlântica SA railway obtained the concession for the Central-East grid, as a result of the privatization process of the Federal Railway Network SA (RFFSA), on June 14, 1996. The granting of this concession was effected by the Presidential Decree of 26/08/96, published in the Federal Official Gazette of 08/27/96. The company started the operation of public rail freight services on September 1, 1996. It is currently controlled by VLI, which owns 99.9% of its shares.
Connections: 7,220 kilometers long, the railway passes through 316 municipalities in seven Brazilian states (Minas Gerais, Espírito Santo, Rio de Janeiro, Sergipe, Goiás, Bahia, São Paulo) and the Federal District. It is the main axis of integration between the Southeast, Northeast and Central-West regions. It stands out as an important route for the logistics flow of general cargo, through its connections with other railroads, whose cargoes are destined to the Port of Santos (SP) and the Tubarão Complex (ES), allowing access to the major consumer centers in the country.
