Task back to top A major supermarket chain in Brazil, Compretudo sources six different product lines from two different countries. Three product lines, described as shipments A, B and C come from different sources in your country. Please identify this country. This is the Group 1 consignment.

Compretudo wants the six shipments to be loaded into one dry 40 foot container by a consolidator with a warehouse next to the major port of export closest to your location and sent by ship to Brazil. There are two final destinations of the cargo in Brazil.
