A couple points: 1) This is from Refinitiv Eikon Interactive Map 2) I've found a couple errors from time to time, so potentially not *all* these ships have #soybeans right now but it should be approximate 3) Sadly I cannot pull from the archives (i.e. show you a year ago today)
Traffic was heavier exactly 6 months ago, but more of the March vessels were coming from #Brazil. This month's map has a decent amount of ships coming out of #Argentina as well. Volumes out of S. America (usually) start to decline this time of year as U.S. ramps up.
Snapshot of vessels currently listed as carrying #soybeans. Still a steady stream of cargoes headed from South America to #China/Asia. Quick check of #Brazil's latest lineup suggests about 4.8 million tonnes to be shipped this month, with some 75% of that to China.
