Who we are

Lyra was created in 2012 by a team of professionals with extensive experience in the maritime shipping market, committed to offering new efficient alternatives for the transportation of bulk cargo on cabotage and long-haul routes.

Having been authorized as an EBN (Brazilian Navigation Company) by the National Waterway Transport Agency (ANTAQ) on May 31, 2012, Lyra has been operating consistently both in the distribution of commodities on the Brazilian coast and in the export/import of steel and grains.

Lyra has regularly invested in the operation of Brazilian-flagged ships, maintaining a highly qualified crew in order to always provide the highest quality service.

What we do

Maritime cabotage and long-haul shipping

With an annual volume of approximately 2 million tons, in the North > South direction, Lyra transports around 90% of the raw salt distributed on the Brazilian coast, and is the main carrier of this commodity. We also actively participate in steel exports from Brazil to Argentina, and salt exports to the USA and Africa.

South > North, we are heavily involved in the import of raw materials from Argentina and Uruguay for the brewing markets (malt and barley), in the supply of wheat for the pasta and cookie industries, and in the supply of corn for the poultry industry in the northeast of the country.

Commercial agency and representation of foreign shipowners

Lyra offers commercial and general agency services to foreign shipowners calling at Brazilian ports on long-haul voyages.

Social commitment

Lyra proudly supports various social projects. Among them is the sand soccer school project for children in Leme, where we even sponsor the Vasco da Gama team in the Beach Soccer World Championship.

And we go further, supporting Jiu Jitsu athletes in national and world surfing championships, as in our latest action with the "Gigantes de Nazaré" event in Portugal and other small national events throughout the year.
