The Integrated Logistics Chamber (CLI) was created on November 16, 2000, by the means of a protocol signed by AEB President, Benedicto Fonseca Moreira, and also by the Executive Secretary of the Foreign Trade Chamber (CAMEX), Roberto Giannetti da Fonseca, seeking for the continuous improvement of logistics as a determining factor in the competitiveness of national products vis-à-vis foreign trade.
By the ingress of the National Agency for Waterway Transport (ANTAQ) and the National Agency for Land Transport (ANTT) in 2009 the Chameber looked at greater integration between public and private actions towards logistical excellence for our foreign trade.
At least once a month, CLI meets to monitor and evaluate issues related to logistics, in order to achieve positive results that reduce existing barriers in the flows of products and services. It seeks to prioritize the matters of export corridors and the integration of existing modes in each area studied.
CLI is also responsible for coordinating the representatives appointed by AEB in the group of exporting/importing users of the Council of Port Authorities (CAP), constituted in each public port. This work seeks to value participation in CAPs, generating information flows that allow monitoring priority issues related to the performance of each port management.
In its functional performance, via CLI, AEB has signed agreements with foreign ports, such as the ports of Houston and Virginia, in the United States, and those of Sines and Algarve, in Portugal, with the main goal of encouraging the flow of goods and investments related to Brazilian foreign trade.
