Has the pandemic caused by the coronavirus already had an impact on Brazilian imports and exports according to the main ranges of trade?

Analysis carried out using DataLiner data until February (the last full month of data available in the system) still does not show this impact. If we compare the first two months of 2020 with the first two months of 2019 (by TEU) it is possible to notice that most trade lanes showed growth up to February, although the trend is expected to show another reality going forward.
