After a precipitous drop in December, Soybean shipments to China picked up in January due to the trade war cease-fire set to last until March 1, unless the U.S. and China can strike a deal.
According to BIMCO analysis of USDA figures, 754,609 metric tons of soybeans were ready to be shipped in China in January. In December that number was just 25,347 metric tons.
