Most of the decline came at Latin America's largest port, Santos, where ethanol exports totalled 186,541 tonnes, down almost 19% from 229,900 tonnes in June, according to the Williams data.
Williams is one of the largest shipping agencies in Brazil. The government also provides monthly ethanol export data, but not on a port-by-port basis.
Santos shipped more than triple the cargo tonnage from the other ports. Paranagua and Vitoria accounted for 57,129 tonnes shipped, or 23% of total ethanol shipments in July.
Three European ports - Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Hamina, Finland - received 44,600 tonnes in ethanol cargoes, or 18% of total exports in July.
