Maybe Brazil greed to rip down rain forest and put that land into production and producing more grain than their infrastructure can handle is so pathetic it only shows how greed and money dictates over common sense. Time will tell what permanent damage those greedy fools are doing to their country and eco system.

When you look at the monthly exports of soybeans last spring the 8 million tonnes shipped in May stands out. That was after the government offices started working longer hours reducing the waiting times from when a ship was loaded and it could leave berth to make room for the next ship. That little change will go a long way to keeping the long lineup seen last year. When the trucks have shorter waiting periods to unload the faster the turn around and the more they can haul. That may be enough to keep a cap on trucking rates below what was seen last year.
