U.S.-Flag Lakes Float Dips in June

CLEVELAND—U.S.-flag Great Lakes freighters (“lakers”) carried 9.9 million tons of dry-bulk cargo in June, a virtual tie with May, but 1.3 percent below a year ago and the month’s 5-year average. Iron ore cargos for the steel industry slipped 3.1 percent compared to a year ago. Aggregate and fluxstone for construction and steelmaking rose 13.1 percent, but coal for power generation and steel production fell 16 percent, in part because of a lengthy weather-related outage at Superior Midwest Energy Terminal in Superior, Wisconsin
