Wednesday, December 18, 2013

Shipments of limestone on the Great Lakes totaled 2.8 million tons in November, a virtual tie with a year ago. The November total was down 10 percent from the month’s long-term average, and 22 percent below October’s float of 3.6 million tons.

Shipments from U.S. ports totaled 2.3 million tons, a near perfect repeat of a year ago. Loadings at Canadian quarries dipped slightly to 505,000 tons.

Year-to-date the Lakes limestone trade stands at 26.4 million tons, an increase of one boatload compared to a year ago, but  5.6 percent below the long-term average for the January-November timeframe.
