Grain exports bolster foundering Great Lakes shipping volume
from The Kingston Whig Standard
Booming exports of grain are driving the Great Lakes shipping industry's rebound, with shipments of Canadian grain up 13 per cent from last year. The demand for grain helps offset downturns among many other products, like coal, steel and iron ore, which have brought the overall amount of cargo shipped on the Great Lakes St. Lawrence Seaway down eight per cent year-to-date.
