But what are ZEP's and how do they work?

As the name implies, they are places where there is free trade with other countries, aimed at companies that focus on productivity and exports of goods and services. As an industrial resource that worked elsewhere, these Export Processing Zones usually generate jobs, add innovative technologies, make the country more competitive in this type of service, attract new investors from various market segments and generate revenue for significant city to which it is installed and to the Union.

At the beginning of 2014, Prumo Logística took on the project and changed the focus of the enterprise.
