U.S.-flag cargo movement on Lakes sees little change in January
U.S.-flag Great Lakes freighters moved 2.1 million tons of dry bulk cargo in January, a decrease of 125,000 tons compared to a year ago. This January’s float was, however, down nearly a quarter from the month’s five-year average.
Iron ore cargoes for steel production increased by 120,000 tons, but coal cargoes, mostly for power generation, dipped by 17,000 tons. No limestone was loaded in January.
