Market Talks: Grain freight at the highest level for January

Author Argus

The most advanced harvest in the history of Brazil’s Mato Grosso state led to a higher demand for transportation services, which has also contributed to the rising of grain freight rates happening earlier in the year, as opposed to the usual, in mid-February.

In this scenario, rates reached the highest levels since the beginning of Argus grains freight coverage in Brazil.

Join Camila Dias, Argus Brazil Bureau Chief, and João Petrini, reporter for the Argus Brazil Grains and Fertilizer publication, as they talk about the elements contributing to this scenario, the impacts on road freight rates, and the outlook for 2022 going forward.
