Sugar Shipments Back to Port of Santos’ spotlight
Friday, February 24, 2023
Sugar was the cargo that stood out the most at the Port of Santos in January, up 37.2% year-on-year, totaling 1.2 million tonnes. The commodity was the highlight among export cargoes, accompanied by corn, which also performed well, totaling 1.4 million, a growth of 43.2%. The performance of these goods increased the movement of solid bulk by 0.9%. The overall movement in January was 10.1 million tonnes, a 4.7% decrease from the same month last year (10.6 million tons) when the January historical record was set. The drop was primarily caused by a 51% decrease in shipments from the soy complex and a 17.8% decrease in fertilizer arrivals. As a result, January/2023 is the second-best January result in the port’s history.Click here to connect to the source of this storyClick here for more News and Views
As I browse the web researching various topics concerning the EU and UK sugar markets, I've been bookmarking interesting weblinks. Some of these are news clippings, some are links to official documents, and some are interesting data sources.
