Ships carrying hundreds of tonnes of containers are unable to reach the Amazonian capital due to low river levels. Companies are not receiving their supplies and are unable to transport their products through the ports. "We didn't imagine such a severe low water level, but we did anticipate the arrival of national and imported supplies. But there comes a point when unfortunately...it's...many companies have had to paralyse their production. The expectation for this year, considering this drought and delivery difficulties in some parts of the country, is that we will repeat last year's indicators, which unfortunately 2022 is considered to be the worst of the last 10 years," said José Jorge do Nascimento Júnior, executive president of Eletros, the National Association of Manufacturers of Electrical and Electronic Products.
