U.S.-Flag Cargo Movement on Lakes Tops 10 Million Tons in August

CLEVELAND — U.S.-flag Great Lakes freighters (lakers) moved 10 million tons of cargo in August, a near repeat of a year ago. The August float was also largely in line with the month’s 5- year average.

Iron ore cargos for steel production totaled 5 million tons, an increase of 6.8 percent compared to a year ago, and the second consecutive month in which ore shipments topped 5 million tons.
