São Paulo, April 2019 - Making companies competitive through a modern infrastructure in a strategic location. It is with this premise that the Polo Multimodal Pecém presents itself to the market. Located in the vicinity of the Port of Pecém, in the Municipality of São Gonçalo do Amarante, State of Ceará and with more than 20 million m² of property area, POLO MULTIMODAL PECÉM was designed by the architect and town planner Alcindo Dell'Agnese within the more modern international standards in terms of infrastructure, technology and sustainability.
The expansion of the Panama Canal in 2016 doubled the transhipment capacity of large container ships (post-panamax) directly benefiting the Port of Pecém, and placing it among the new routes of global logistics. Assessing the region's potential, the Port of Rotterdam in October 2018 invested USD 85 million in the development of the Port of Pecém, through a 30% stake in the Port of Pecém's Industrial Complex, including the newly Export Processing Zone (Zona de Exportação Especial - ZPE), where 27 companies already operate with tax exemption and foreign exchange freedom. It is in this context that POLO MULTIMODAL PECÉM, a 100% private project, gained strategic importance as a retroportuary logistics and industrial area in proximity and complement of the activities of the public industrial complex of Pecém.
With more than 20 million m² of land acquired in a strategic location just 15 km from the Port of Pecém's Industrial Complex and ZPE, the POLO MULTIMODAL PECÉM will build a modern logistics and industrial platform to enable and boost the competitiveness of small and medium-sized enterprises companies (SMEs) and large multinationals.
"We are a unique project in Latin America in terms of size, socioeconomic impact and turnover, due to the differential of being located in a strategic area in great development. In addition to being increasingly targeted at the ambitions of the great international players", reveals Sebastiano Di Ruocco, CEO of Polo Multimodal.
O POLO MULTIMODAL PECÉM will meet the demand of the suppliers of the large industries installed in the Export Processing Zone (ZPE), of national and international industries, distribution centers, commerce and services of the region, and the 20 thousand projected residential units.
“The area of the project chosen was strategic, because it unites the Polo Multimodal, the Port of Pecém and the Export Processing Zone - ZPE, thus creating a true chain of innovation that involves industries of various sizes and segments", says Sebastiano.
In addition, o POLO MULTIMODAL PECÉM provides the logistics hub and industries with customized solutions and innovative technologies to improve process management and the entire value chain, leveraging the competitiveness of business and the Brazilian economy. Leading solutions for business in logistics and industry 4.0, based on technology and sustainability to meet the demands of the global market and gain recognition as the most efficient and complete logistics and production platform in Brazil.
"In the prosperous symbiotic ecosystem of the Porto of Pecém region, we have designed an innovative and sustainable Smart Chain City to meet the demands of global logistics and industry, benefiting from blockchain technology while contributing to a positive ecological and social impact", explains Di Ruocco.
As a long-term real estate project with an international vocation, the Polo Multimodal chose an innovative financial instrument with global reach, the reason why the Security Token was chosen. Polo Security Tokens (PST) are securities that represent rights over the economic result of the company, as well as the right to receive dividends, and that can be traded on the main digital stock exchanges, guaranteeing at any moment the liquidity for the investor that wishes to liquidate his/her own investment.
"We are the first venture to announce a Security Token offer for a Real Estate project in Latin America. In the world scenario Security Token represents a global trend in strong growth in financial markets", concludes the CEO.
In Brazil, there are still no clear regulations for the public and unlimited tokens offering such as the PST. Therefore, our lawyers have opted to make the offer via crowdfunding, which, although limited, has the potential to inaugurate the investment tokens market in Brazil and is fully regulated by the CVM.
The Polo Multimodal represents one of the first asset backed token, and the initial value of the digital shares is backed up by the 20 million squarte meters areas already owned by the company. The progressive construction of the Smart City on the ground will reflect on the token price at the exchanges, creating significant value for its investors (Token Holders).
