Shipping Season Increases at Port of Toledo

(Toledo, OH) The shipping season's not quite over, but port authority officials say the number of freighters are growing. 

The Port of Toledo is now the largest land-mass port on the Great Lakes-- and that distinction is starting to pay big dividends. The amount of iron ore hauled to and from the port tripled from last year to three million tons. 

While overall shipping numbers still lag slightly behind the 2014 season of more than eight million tons of cargo, the new Cleveland Cliffs production facility will add two more tons of iron ore and 100 freighters to those numbers once it opens in 2020, with other large-scale port projects in the planning stages.
