- General News
According to a recent Census Bureau report, shipments of U.S. soy through ports on the East Coast are a key factor in the growth of U.S. soymeal exports to Europe. In the first six months of the 2013-2014 marketing year, 52.5 percent of soymeal shipped to Europe passed through ports on the Eastern seaboard.
Shipments from Norfolk, Virginia were primarily by Perdue Farms while shipments leaving the customs district of Savannah, Georgia were primarily through Bunge via the port of Brunswick, Georgia.
