Carriers make no money in Brazil

The stiff competition among the carriers will make sure that the removal 2016/17 without interference is handled by agricultural commodities from the Brazilian surplus regions in the season. That benefit the farmers in these weeks bring a bumper crop - but the profits of the forwarding agents are low.
Small family business with a few trucks have attention in the last few days in Mato Grosso with roadblocks on your desolate location. The province is Brazil's largest grain producer. Rising costs eat margins of carriers, according to a spokesman for the protesters.
According to official estimates, Brazil will reap 103.8 million tons of soybeans this year and the country is the world's largest exporter of this oilseed again. 57 million tonnes to be executed. In Mato Grosso, the harvest has already started. The high point of the harvest is expected for the end of January and beginning of February.
The local dealer store a part of the harvest, the largest part is then transported away but immediately in Mills and in seaports. The transport takes place only by truck, even though the country is huge, there are no rail network. Freight rates are under pressure because of a glut of trucks. Years ago, the Government had subsidized the salaries of drivers and thus stimulates the purchase of vehicles.
There are 1,600 kilometers from the Centre of Mato Grosso, in the ports of Paranagua, the clients pay a freight rate of 230 real, equivalent 68.5 euro / ton. A year ago, the rate was still at 240 real. Since then, the prices of diesel by 3.1% are attracted to but and the toll for the entertainment of the road system grew by 6.3%.
Benefit taken in fact also not the farmers of the lower cost, but the freight rates regulated by the State will be deducted the sellers. Now, the carriers hope that the demand for cargo space is greater in February and then profits can be retracted.
