BUSINESS

When was the company founded and what is its history?

Tegma’s history began in 1969, when it was founded by Fernando Schettino and Francisco Creso as Transportadora Sinimbú and was responsible for transporting meat. In 1971, after commercial negotiations, the company began a vehicle transportation operation for the automaker General Motors, from its São Caetano do Sul plant to Rio de Janeiro and Niterói. The expansion of the vehicle transportation business was exponential and with acquisitions and the attraction of new customers became the main business of the company within a short period.

In July 2007, Tegma held its IPO on Bovespa/B3 and became the first company in the segment to open its capital. Read more in our About Us section.


What are Tegma’s business divisions?

Tegma is a logistics operator that specializes in highly complex operations for industrial sectors that require a strict standard of service quality. We currently focus our operations on two main lines of business, automotive logistics and integrated logistics.

In automotive logistics, we provide transfer and distribution services for brand-new and used vehicles, port transfers, inventory management, vehicle manufacturer yard management and vehicle preparation services for sale.

In integrated logistics, we operate with two distinct operations, that of industrial logistics, operating in all stages, from the receipt of bulk products at ports or parts from suppliers to the supply of production lines. In the warehousing operation, we perform entry planning, handling and sorting, picking, sorting and order preparation and shipping services, all through our warehouses that add up to 27,000 m² in the city of Barueri in São Paulo and in the city of Pavuna, in Rio de Janeiro.

Read more about our operations in the Our Business section or download our Institutional Presentation.


What are Tegma’s areas of activity?

Tegma is directly related to the brand-new vehicle market in Brazil, a cyclical sector that has historically followed Brazilian and global economic performance. In periods of low growth or recession, the sale of new vehicles tends to fall considerably and in times of strong economic growth, sales grow exponentially higher than GDP growth levels.

Tegma is also closely linked to the personal care, glass work and home appliance sectors, since we operate the supply line for these industries. We are exposed to consumer goods sectors, since we store food products and commodities for e-commerce companies.

The Company’s headquarters are located in São Bernardo do Campo, in the suburban ABC region of São Paulo, the birthplace of the automobile industry in Brazil.

In Automotive Logistics, we transport vehicles to approximately 2,900 dealerships across the country, in addition to delivering vehicles produced in Brazil to be exported via ports or to Mercosur countries by road. We have more than 20 yards in 11 different states, located near automakers or at strategic points.

In Integrated Logistics, we concentrate our operations near the bases of our customers, located in the states of São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro and Paraná.

Read more about our operations in the Our Business section or download our Institutional Presentation.


What is Tegma’s logistics modality?

Tegma is primarily a road transport company, except for the waterway route for the transportation of brand-new vehicles between the city of Belém-PA and the city of Manaus-AM and surrounding areas, mainly through the Amazon River. The road between these two cities is not feasible and the water-based route takes 7 days, with an average of 170 vehicles on a single ferry, which we do not own, but rather hire.


Does Tegma have business abroad?

Tegma currently has no business abroad.


How is Tegma’s investment in innovation?

What is the difference between storage and yard management?

The vehicle storage service corresponds to the parking of vehicles that leave automakers due to a lack of space inside the factories. The service is performed and charged in terms of time and places used.

The yard management service corresponds to the service we provide for the administration of all vehicles that leave the customer’s factory or that are imported, including vehicles that will not be transported by us. These vehicles are handled by our employees and we are constantly in contact with the automaker in this process.


Could you explain the vehicle transport operation in detail?

For automakers, cost rationalization depends on scheduling and synchronized integration of all stages of the production process. For the automakers to produce with the minimum capital employed, it is necessary to have a minimum inventory formation, synchronizing the supply of parts and equipment with the expected flow of demand for new vehicles.

New vehicles are billed in the CIF mode by almost all automakers. Freight and insurance costs are paid by the automakers and are factored into the final cost of the vehicles for dealerships and final consumers.

From the moment a dealership orders a vehicle lot from the automaker, its delivery should take place immediately so as to meet customer expectations. The speed of delivery and the level of damage to the vehicle are two important factors for the success of sales efforts.

Dealerships maintain small inventories of new vehicles. Thus, a large part of this inventory is stored in the yards of automakers or at Tegma. These are mostly rented (17 out of 21). Within the Tegma yards, it is also necessary to inspect and adapt vehicles before delivering them to rental companies and dealerships.

While some of these resellers or rental companies located in the largest urban centers place orders for larger lots and more regularly, which in some cases allows for direct shipments from automakers,

others, located in smaller cities, do so sporadically and in small lots. Delivery speed is still a competitive attribute of equal importance in all cases. Thus, it becomes necessary to consolidate the vehicles of automakers from the same region at Tegma yards.

Consolidation consists of transporting vehicles of different brands in a given route on the same truck, reducing waiting times and the average cost per vehicle.

Vehicle exports are taken to the ports or by road to Mercosur countries.

The mix of company-hired truck drivers (7%) and outsourced drivers (93%) is due to the strategy aimed at reducing the risks associated with fluctuations in demand for services and capturing the gains resulting from the specialization acquired by truck drivers with respect to certain routes.

Due to the fact that we have more than a thousand truck drivers on the roads in Brazil, since 2007 we have a program called Forte, aimed at training, communicating and preventing accidents with our truck drivers.


Does the acquisition of company-owned cars tend to decrease?

Until the beginning of the COVID 19 Pandemic, one could notice a trend in large urban centers in the country that pointed to a reduction in the intention to purchase vehicles, especially on the part of young people, due to the use of ride apps like Uber and the increase in car rentals for longer trips. However, outside the big centers, there was still a great interest on the part of people who still depended on public transportation to buy their own vehicle.

After the COVID 19 Pandemic, one could notice an increase in the interest in purchasing a vehicle so that one could depend less on public transportation due to social isolation measures.


How can I calculate Tegma’s vehicle logistics market share?

The vehicle logistics market share is the percentage market of vehicles that were transported by Tegma. This percentage is obtained by dividing the number of vehicles transported by Tegma by wholesale vehicle sales. All of these data are available in our Historical Series.

Wholesale sales (production + sale of imported vehicles¹ – variation in automaker inventories) is the best representation of our market, which corresponds to sales between automakers/ports and dealerships/exports. In addition, one can calculate the market share by calculating domestic sales + exports.

1 the best indicator would be the number of vehicles imported by Brazil, which is no longer published by the Government, and this made us replace it with the number of imported vehicles sold in the country.


How can I better understand the logistics sector?

In addition to our institutional presentation, in which we briefly contextualize the logistics sectors in which Tegma operates, specific content on the topic can be found on the websites of ABOL (Brazilian Association of Logistics Operators), ABRALOG (Brazilian Association of Logistics) and ILOS (Institute of Logistics and Supply Chain).


What does an asset light business model entail? How is Tegma’s relationship with its truck drivers?

This term refers to the fact that we do not own a good part of the trucks that we use in our operations, due to the fact that the transportation is carried out by partners. Likewise, most of the consolidating yards for vehicle operation and 100% of the warehouses for integrated logistics operations are rented.

This model is known for being adaptable to market expansions and retractions, presenting a high level of resilience in terms of results.


Why did you choose an Asset Light model? What are the major advantages of outsourcing the fleet?

The reason for choosing the asset-light model is due to the high volatility of the new vehicle sales market in Brazil, which has already gone through several crises and, due to the vehicle’s discretionary characteristic, sales usually fall much more than the economic average suggests.

Because of this, the asset light model in which we hire partners to carry out vehicle transportation in return for variable remuneration is a way for the company to protect itself from moments of crisis.

The advantage of the outsourced model is the incentive to our partner freighters – the more they work, the better paid they will be. However, all the rules of the trucker law are being complied with, with the maximum number of hours of work per day, resting hoursand all other requirements to safeguard the quality of work being respected.


How do I get information about the automotive market?

The ANFAVEA and Fenabrave are the largest associations in the automotive sector and consequently the main data providers and pro market statistics. Additionally, we have compiled the main information on the sector and made it available in our Historical Series, in the “market data” tab.


Is Tegma affiliated with any class association?

Tegma is affiliated with ABOL (Brazilian Association of Logistics Operators) and ABIQUIM (Brazilian Chemical Industry Association).


What is the GDL joint venture? What about Catlog?

GDL is a joint venture between Tegma and the company Silotec (50% – 50%) that unified the customs and general storage activities developed by the two companies in Cariacica/ES.

Catlog was a jointly controlled subsidiary of Tegma with Compagnie D’ Affretement et de Transport – CAT, which provided logistics services for the automaker Renault-Nissan and had its operations discontinued in 2015.


Why should I buy Tegma shares?

Tegma is a logistics company, with great exposure to the automotive market for brand-new vehicles, a market that in turn depends on GD, national income level, credit facility for the segment, consumer confidence, rental companies and, more recently, the dynamics of ride sharing apps (Uber, 99, Cabify). Tegma’s market share in recent years has been between 28.6% and 25.6%, reflecting the stability of the contracts with the automakers that contemplate the regions where we work. The company has a large percentage of its costs linked to the number of vehicles transported, given that most of the trucks we use are outsourced, which makes margins and cash generation resilient to the major fluctuations inherent to the Brazilian automotive market.

Tegma is also responsible for the integrated logistics operation for the management of raw materials for the manufacturing of household and personal cleaning materials, glass work and parts for the production of household appliances.

The company has a capital structure that isn’t very leveraged due to the high cash generation and low investments required to support the growth of its operations.
