Low water, lack of dredging continues to drag down iron ore shipments
Duluth News Tribune
Published December 20, 2007


Iron ore shipments in October in the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway system were 5.7 million net tons, a 1.5 percent increase compared to a year ago, according to the Lake Carriers' Association.

The shipments were 2.5 percent lower than a five-year average for the month.

For the year, iron ore trade on the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Seaway system through October was 47.2 million tons, a 2.4 percent decrease compared to 2006.

Low water levels and a dredging crisis continue to limit iron ore vessels from carrying full loads, according to the association.
