Weekly corn export shipments last week nearly doubled the previous week's total, gaining 654,824 metric tons to finish at 1.3 million MT last week. That's according to Pork Network, which reports that shipments were at their highest level since the government furlough and ended a two-week decline. Shipments last week achieved the second highest one-week total, with the highest point counting the entire month of October when government reports were delayed. Weekly shipment totals were led by Mexico, receiving 289,800 metric tons. Other high totals include Japan (235,400 MT), China (204,600 MT), South Korea (122,200 MT), and Egypt (118,700 MT).

Weekly export sales were 79 percent higher than the previous week, gaining 651,469 metric tons to 1,478,536 MT. Last week’s improvement moved export sales higher for the third consecutive week.

Soybean export sales advanced while shipments moved lower last week. Weekly sales were 304,694 MT higher to 720,202 MT. Shipments fell 123,660 MT from the previous week to 1,445,581 MT.
