After days of waiting, 40 tons of grain from Canada arrive at the port of Havana

HAVANA, June 3dt. After more than 10 days of waiting to disembark in the port of Havana, the Shinsung Accord ship was able to unload the 40 tons of grain from Canada.Platforms such as 14ymedio allege that, since May 31, the boat has been wandering around the area without success, something that is not the first time that has happened.

This is fundamentally because the Cuban government does not have sufficient funds to pay for the ship’s cargo and services on time, causing an entry delay, authorities declare to state media.

For its part, the Shinsung Accord, with an approximate capacity of 46 tons of grain, left Montreal, Canada, on May 10, according to maritime tracking. It arrived on the Cuban coast on May 20, but could not enter. to the capital port until May 30.

No source specifies what type of grains were sent from Canada to the Island, but several are betting on cereals and corn, for the manufacture of flour, given the shortage that makes the production and sale of bread difficult.

Once again Cuba’s financing problems affect the arrival of food and fuel.

Very recently, last April, the ‘Eco Fleet’ ship, with 40 thousand tons of diesel from Tunisia, had to leave the Cuban coast until reaching Jamaica, after waiting days for payment and its subsequent unloading.
