The representative of the sector, Agustin Conde, said that the trucks were stranded in different areas of Santa Cruz.
According to him, if the trucks do not reach their destination, losses will amount to almost one million dollars, as each truckload is valued at 9,000 dollars.
Last week the sector already lost half a million dollars due to the blockades.
The sector expects the National Council of Democracy (Conade) of Cochabamba to allow these trucks with bananas to continue on their way to Argentina. ■
