Brazil corn freight prices jump 20% in wake of road blockades - trade group Abiove
SAO PAULO, Nov 24 (Reuters) - The protests over Brazil's election result that blocked roads in Mato Grosso state earlier this week rose truck freight prices to transport corn by 20% or 50 reais ($9.40) per tonne, Abiove, an industry group representing global trading firms, told Reuters on Thursday.
The most affected routes are the Sorriso-Miritituba and the Sinop Miritituba, Abiove President Andre Nassar said by telephone. As a result of disruptions caused by the road blockades, certain Abiove members expressed concern about failing to honor corn export contracts, Nassar said.
