Entrance to Port of Santos reopens

The entrance to the Port of Santos in Brazil reopened on Thursday after being closed for 30 hours because of rough seas, according to Reuters.

Latin America’s busiest container port, Santos is Brazil’s biggest export gateway for soybeans, one of its most important crops, and this is the peak of the soy export season.

Around 20 ships were prevented from accessing or departing the navigation channel during the closure.
