Trade war sees ethanol taking slow boat to China

In response to the ongoing Sino-US trade spat, which has affected imports of ethanol among other products, exports from the US are apparently finding creative ways to reach China. Shipping movements show that countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia are re-exporting the product to China to circumvent the duties
