About us

In 2011, Heavy Lift Logistics was funded focusing on the transportation segment and on the movement of super-heavy indivisible loads (cargo projects) in maritime, fluvial, and road modalities in the Northern Region of Brazil, in addition to the exclusive representation of NAVEGAÇÃO PRATES in everything that refers to the cargo freight project.


From 2017 on, with the increase of investments in heavy transport, the company also began to operate in other regions, transporting the indivisible loads of the main infrastructure projects in Brazil.


In 2020, already having adopted the fantasy name Macz Heavy Lift and due to the significant expansion of the business, MACZ HEAVY LIFT and NAVEGAÇÃO PRATES decided to invest together and created the brand PRATES HEAVY LIFT, focused on logistics solutions in the Northern Region of Brazil, providing logistics services such as highway and river transportation; crane and forklift rental.

Back to the origins: In 2022, there was a new change in the trading name. The company changed its name to Heavy Lift Logistica LTDA.
