According to the newspaper La Nación, the throughput at Bahia Blanca has increased by 30 percent in the last month, due to the drought on the Paraná River, which is affecting operations at the northern Gran Rosario ports.
According to the newspaper, the protesters prevented the trucks from driving . . .
