Two more vessels loaded with US soybeans have departed for China, signaling that buyers may be getting more desperate for supplies amid the prolonged trade war between the nations.
Star Laura and Golden Empress were loaded during the week ended Oct. 11.

Government data shows 65,431 metric tons of US soybeans were inspected or weighed for export through the Gulf of Mexico that week, and 69,298 tons through Puget Sound.
