U.S.-Flag Cargo Movement on Lakes Little Changed in January

CLEVELAND — U.S.-flag Great Lakes freighters (lakers) 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 5-year average.

Iron ore cargos for steel production increased by 120,000 tons, but coal cargos, mostly for power generation, dipped by 17,000 tons. No limestone was loaded in January.
