In the wake of the COVID-19 situation, Argentina Ports has set new measures to limit the spread of the disease and help grain operations come back to normal. Specifically, following the country’s decision to close its borders, grains and oilseeds exporters said they may face several delays.
A Protocol of Agreement was inked several days ago between Freeport of Riga and province of Corrientes, in order to boost and expand both of the ports’ facilities. Through this agreement, the two sides aim to find ways to develop their bilateral trade and to enhance Argentinian produce exports via the Port of Riga.
As ICTSI Argentina announced, TecPlata, the new container terminal located in Argentina’s Puerto de La Plata, began operations, with an opening ceremony that was attended by the vice governor of the province of Buenos Aires, the Minister of Production and several other national, provincial and municipal officials.
Grain transport ships using Argentina’s port hub of Rosario, needed to reduce their cargo by between 3,200 and 4,300 tonnes, due to the low water level in the Parana River, according to the Rosario grains exchange. Almost 80% of Argentina’s agricultural and agroindustrial exports to international markets is transported through the Parana River.
