Great Lakes Iron Ore Trade Down Slightly in 2018

CLEVELAND – A 14-percent increase in iron ore shipments on the Great Lakes in December pushed the year-end total to 55.6 million tons, a decrease of just 0.3 percent, or three cargos in a 1,000-foot-long laker, compared to 2017. Early in the season, the trade was down nearly 14 percent, largely because of delays caused by heavy ice, but the gap narrowed steadily as the year progressed.
