There is a good bit of talk about the booming economic development in Brazil, and many large industries are looking to expand their manufacturing and business operations to this hot market. In combination with it's vast natural resources, Brazil could become the new business hub of the Southern hemisphere, and material handling equipment providers are finding opportunities there as well.
Why would someone build a 23 mile long conveyor system? Well, this is just one example of the use of a custom designed conveyor system that offers both a huge cost savings and a positive impact on the environment. Vale, S.A., the second-largest metals and mining company in the world, is building just such a conveyor system in Brazil to transport iron ore. The 23-mile long conveyor system will replace 100 trucks, and reduce operating fuel costs by an estimated 77%.
