The floods in Queensland caused trucks transporting fruit from Cobram two-day delays on the NSW-Queensland border.
Cobram Fruit Growers Association president Frank Diaco said some trucks containing fruit he produced were stranded for two days.
‘‘There was no real financial impact on us; there may have been on the transport operator,’’ he said. ‘‘They would have had to keep their trucks running and would have been burning diesel in order to keep the refrigerators on.’’
Mr Diaco said the trucks were getting through last week and the floods had not yet increased product demand or prices.
Once water on the highway receded, the trucks were able to get through and the fruit to Brisbane for sale.
‘‘The impact might be felt later on, once they’ve found out how the citrus growing areas have been affected,’’ Mr Diaco said.
He said there was no real food shortage and the floods had not caused any panic buying, as seen during the 2011 floods, which saw supermarkets in Brisbane run out of products.
