Summary: 

However, transporting nearly 1,200 metric tons on the White Nile is not an easy task.  The barges were delayed for weeks after they hit a sandbank and developed mechanical problems that required spare parts to be imported.   They finally reached their locations and WFP has completed the loading of an additional 1,157 metric tons of commodities for a second barge convoy to Upper Nile State.
