Third U.S. Soybean Vessel Left in Limbo Off China Unloads Cargo
USAgNet - 08/21/2018
The Cemtex Pioneer, a vessel carrying U.S. soybeans that was caught up in the China-U.S. trade row, has left east China's port of Nantong near Shanghai, according to shipping data on Thomson Reuters Eikon on Sunday.
The vessel's draft is now at 58 percent of its maximum, indicating that it has unloaded its cargo.
The ship, which was previously fully laden in port, is the third vessel to unload a U.S. soybean cargo in China over the past week after sitting at anchor off the coast since July.
All three cargoes incur a 25 percent import tariff on U.S. soybean imposed by Beijing from July 6.
