Guatemala Ships Record Load of Sugar

Guatemala is shipping a record single shipment of 50,000 tons of sugar to China.

The flag ship of the Marshall Islands, Yasa Ozcan, arrived Monday in Puerto Quetzal and will transport the sugar to the port of Rizhao in the People's Republic of China.

Carlos Ponce, manager of services of Expogranel, explained that this will be the "biggest load of sugar ever shipped by Guatemala."

Ponce explained that the previous record was about 46,000 tons. He added that the sugar will be shipped in bulk and will be refined by the buyer.

The process of loading the ship will take about 24 hours.

Cargill is the company that purchased the shipment.
