Seaway Cargo Shipments Remain Steady

Cargo shipments on the St. Lawrence Seaway totaled 25.1 million metric tons from March 22 to Sept. 30, basically flat compared with the same period in 2011.

Rebecca Spruill, director of trade development for the Saint Lawrence Seaway Development Corporation, said in a written statement that SLSDC expects the next few months "to reflect slight increases in cargo tonnage for general cargo, U.S. and Canadian grain, iron ore, and coal."
