Seaway cargo surges
nearly 10% in October

2012-11-23

Total cargo shipments through the St. Lawrence Seaway reached 4.4 million tonnes in October, representing a 9.8% increase over a year ago. And cumulative traffic between March 22 and October 31 rose by 1.4% to 29.5 million tonnes.

A big factor in October was a 39% increase in Canadian grain shipments to 1.2 million tonnes.

Bruce Hodgson, Director of Market Development of the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation, indicated that an influx of Canadian grain shipments, both from Prairie and Ontario farmers, for domestic use and export to Europe and the Middle East drove increased October volume.

Other highlights included strong shipments of iron ore, which rose by 20% to 8.5 million tonnes, and a 9% increase in general cargo to 1.56 million tonnes. The latter comprised oversized cargo like heavy machinery and wind turbines.    (photo: Paul Beesley, Shiphotos.com)
