The South Louisiana Rail Facility (SLRF) has had a busy week, loading an ocean vessel for Brazil, railcars to Mexico, and barges for a shipment out of New Orleans for Central America. The efforts of the SLRF cannot be overlooked as these efforts have given farmers market alternatives that did not even exist a few years ago.
Bulk carrier “Revenger” set sail with 30,000 tons of Southwest Louisiana and East Texas rough rice headed to Brazil this week. The vessel is scheduled to arrive at the destination port on December 1st. This is the second vessel sold to Brazil by the South Louisiana Rail Facility (SLRF), a member of the US Rice Producers Association, for a total of 60,000 tons.
