Seaway tolls, wharfage rates set for 2017

The St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation (SLSMC) announced January 25 a toll rate increase of 2.0 percent for the 2017 navigation season.

Seaway wharfage and storage charges have also been revised for the 2017 navigation season. Effective with the commencement of the 2017 navigation season, wharfage charges will increase 2 percent. Following last year’s introduction of a weight or measure charge for general cargo, the weight or measure approach will also be applied to domestic general cargo starting in 2017.

The Great Lakes/St. Lawrence Seaway navigation system supports over 227,000 jobs and $35 billion in economic activity per year. The SLSMC remains dedicated to promoting the economic and environmental benefits of marine transportation, attracting new cargoes to the Seaway and leveraging technology to enhance the system’s performance.
