Port of Detroit’s Shipping Season Opens

Monday, April 19, 2010

On April 17, the Port of Detroit welcomed the arrival of the ocean going vessel, Fairload. The ship's arrival begins the Port of Detroit's 2010 shipping season.

"We are hopeful about this year's Great Lakes shipping season," said Steven Olinek, deputy director of the Detroit/Wayne County Port Authority (DWCPA) "Indicators show that shipping on the St. Lawrence Seaway is improving. This can positively impact the region's economy."

The Fairload, a Netherlands flagged vessel, set sail on April 1, 2010 from Aviles, Spain. The ship, 314 ft long with a 60-ft beam, sailed under the command of Captain D. Kobelev. Rotterdam, Netherlands is its home port. Olinek will present the coveted J.L. Hudson Trophy to Columbus Shipping & Trading Agency, Inc., the ship's agent.
