Today’s ship photos show employees working to load a soybean cargo aboard the ship Krypos Land at the Tiplam terminal in Santos, Brazil, Merch 13, 2017. 

The 2.2 billion reais ($694 million) Tiplam terminal in Latin America’s largest port started operations at a new berth in January and will ramp-up loadings with a second berth at the end of March or early April for a total capacity of 5 million tonnes of grains and 4.5 million tonnes of sugar a year.

The new is expected to add an extra 20 percent to its grains and sugar capacity, boosting shipping services just as the country produces bumper crops. Read the full story: Terminal Gives Timely Boost to Brazil’s Soy, Sugar Shipping Capacity
