Our History

Anhumas: learn the origin of our name


Anhuma is a bird, the “forest sentry”.
Half legend, half real, it is said that an anhuma lodges in the highest trees and shouts something like a resonant “viu-viu” to warn when a stranger approaches. Skittish, they can scare a herd of cattle and alert animals about the presence of hunters. It’s an elegant bird that flies easy.
Besides the spurs in the middle of wings and the orange eyes, its mythological characteristic is a kind of horn that it projects of the cranium as if it were an antenna – therefrom the legend that an anhuma captures the danger signs and alert it.
With a strong and decided singing, is a great size bird, with 80 centimeters of height and wings that can come get to almost to 1,5 meters of wingspan.
Lives in the fields of Northern Brazil, mainly in Pantanal.




That’s how we expect to be recognized. Always.

In Brazil, it is not an exception. Portos Secos themselves, one of the many activities developed by Columbia, also turned in modern and specialized outsourced logistics providers, notably for importers and exporters products.

It was with this spirit, excellence in integrated logistics services and facing liability and ethics, values always present at company, that Columbia directed efforts to adopt a Risks Management politic structured in a set of activities and preventive measures that aims, primarily, control risks, avoiding losses and occurrences and, when necessary, minimize the impacts, with actions of contingency and insurance contracts.
This correct way to manage risks, guarantees a safe administration, low costs, high quality and reliability in operations that was possible only from the moment that Columbia, besides its loyal contributors, started counting with excellent partners (GV, Anhumas, Itaú and Nigel), considering that there is a convergence of thoughts between all of them: in the integrated logistics, a great program of risks management is still an excellent path to keep customers and increase the profitability.asp2
