Brazil faces crunch
Fertilizer ships waiting to be unloaded in time for planting. Crop in the interior tha needs to be moved to make room for the next huge acreage planned. Crop outside on the ground waiting to be shipped. Only two ports that struggle to move everything. New rules for truckers soon that they must get 30 minutes break every four hours and 9 hours off every day.
Brazil's transportation from the interior is still a nightmare and perhaps getting worse because of the increased volume. I've seen truck drivers that have their families with them and cooking in the shelter of the trailer as they wait at ports to get unloaded.
