Great Lakes Ore Trade Down 9 Percent in April

CLEVELAND—Shipments of iron ore on the Great Lakes totaled 5.6 million tons in April, a decrease of 9 percent compared to a year ago. However, loadings were 11 percent ahead of the month’s 5-year average.

Shipments from U.S. ports totaled 4.9 million tons, a decrease of 9.5 percent compared to a year ago. The April total included 257,000 tons shipped to Quebec City for loading into oceangoing vessels and delivery overseas. Shipments from Canadian ports totaled 700,000 tons.

The decrease from a year ago – 36,000 tons – is the equivalent of approximately 1.3 cargos in a Seaway-sized laker.
