Road Emissions Cut Out of Cotton Supply Chain From Brazil to China: Press

Dec. 29, 2021 — Louis Dreyfus Company, one of the largest agricultural trading companies in the world, and Brado, a company specialized in logistics, carried out Brazil’s first transportation of cotton lint done exclusively by train, according to a report on DataMar News / Valor.

According to the companies, the train carried 104 containers and traveled more than 1,500 miles between the terminal in Rondonópolis and the city of Cubatão, where the cargo was distributed in port terminals in Santos to continue towards China, the report said.

Train emissions are much lower than those produced by road transport, it said.

CarrZee comment: Reducing emissions from the agriculture sector is crucial if the Paris climate deal implied targets are going to be met.
