Fifth Cargo of Sorghum Diverted from China

A vessel carrying 70,223 tons of sorghum from the United States to Asia switched its destination last week, becoming the latest diverted cargo in a trade flow roiled by China’s move to impose hefty deposits on U.S. shipments of the grain.

According to Reuters, the RB Eden was heading to Spain's Canary Islands’ Las Palmas, according to Thomson Reuters Eikon ship tracking data on Thursday. 

The ship loaded U.S. sorghum from trader ADM’s Corpus Christi grain elevator in Texas on March 18, according to U.S. Department of Agriculture data. It wasn’t immediately clear where the cargo was originally contracted for in Asia.
