Lakes Coal Trade Well Below Long Term Average

February 13, 2014

According to data compiled by the Lake Carriers’ Association, coal shipments on the Great Lakes totaled 373,000 tons in January. While the total represents an increase of 62 percent compared to a year ago, January 2013 was well below previous years, and even this January’s total is 25 percent below the month’s long-term average.

The harsh weather did limit coal shipments in January, the Lake Carriers’ Association said. Vessels experienced significant delays due to heavy ice on the Lakes and slower loads at some docks.
