The Tietê-Paraná Waterway is a key route to connect important areas of the São Paulo hinterland with other Brazilian states and neighboring nations such as Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay and Bolivia.

With 800 kilometers of navigable routes within the state of São Paulo (from a total of 2,400 kilometers of navigable waterways), it is connected to the state’s existing road and railroad network and thus increases transport facilities, especially for cargo.

The São Paulo stretch of the waterways has 10 reservoirs, 10 dams, 10 locks, 23 bridges, 19 shipyards and 30 intermodal cargo terminals.
