Lakes Ice Stalls Resumption of Coal Trade

CLEVELAND – Ice, sometimes more than 4 feet thick in places, effectively stalled the resumption of the coal trade on the Great Lakes in March. Only three coal cargos were loaded, one on Lake Superior, one on Lake Michigan and one on Lake Erie. Combined, the cargos totaled 102,000 tons, a decrease of 70 percent compared to a year ago.

Compared to the month’s 5-year average, March loadings were down more than 80 percent.
