Vitoria, BR Port (Port Code: BRVIT) is a port located on Vitoria Island, in Espirito Santo state, on the mid-east coast of Brazil, 220 n.m. NE of Rio de Janeiro. As a river port, it handles coffee, containers, granite, pig iron, steel products, sugar, wood pulp, cars, malt, fertilisers and breakbulk cargo. The types of vessels regularly calling at the port are bulk carrier, fffshore supply ship, vehicles carrier, pipe layer, and general cargo. It is the most difficult port for ships to access in all of Brazil. The Bay of Vitória is extremely narrow, with rocks and hills that complicate access by freighters and maritime cruisers to the docks. Ships, cars, and people all compete for space. There are restrictions on traffic, limiting the use of the port. Currently, the port is mostly used by cruise ships and for the repair of ships and oil platforms.
