Re: Fix one bottleneck, move to the next one

Isn't it nice to know we aren't the only ones with problems?

BRRRR!!!

EVERYTHING IS FROZE HERE AT GAVILON CRESTON.

The office is open, however the scale and dump pits are frozen solid. Call before you head this way!

Re: Fix one bottleneck, move to the next one

Wonder how many fewer global warming advocates Texas has this week vs, last week...  Looks like natural has will also need to change from 'Just in time" to "Just in case" inventory management.

Re: I have never seen this many ...

I have never seen this many ships waiting at the Port of Santos anchorage, Brazil.  I countered 81, and another 40 at Paranagua.  Is it because the harvest is late and they're waiting on beans or because they know there's going to be lots of beans and will need all those ships?

How did the world build that many ships in the first place!  :-))))))

After 4, time to work on domestic consumption :-)

Re: I have never seen this many ...

Kind of where my head went....... If you had 5 trucks in line at the elevator that can't get dumped would you buy 5 more?

Or would you build an elevator?   

It always seems to me that Brazil gets treated like Africa does by Europe.  Don't invest there and develop the infrastructure , rather just take all you can get out of it as fast as possible before they steal the tires off the trucks.

just seems like it looks.......... how can their production keep growing..?     Maybe it didn't.

Re: I have never seen this many ...

A few weeks ago on here I read that a lot of ships arrived the week of 1-11-18. About 40 if I remember correctly. They had no beans to load because of the rain.
