Shipping lines trading in the Montreal-Lake Ontario section of the St. Lawrence Seaway have been advised, as of May 7, to take into account an adjustment of the maximum permissible draft due to the abnormally low water levels following a mild winter and hardly any rain in the spring. While the maximum permissible draft of 26 feet, 6 inches does not presently affect inland vessels greater than 185 metres in length (largest Seaway-size), vessels under 185 metres long must operate within a maximum draft of 26 feet, 3 inches, or three inches lower.

Le volume de fret sur la Voie maritime en hausse

2010-05-11

Seaway cargo volume rebounded strongly in the early part of the 2010 shipping season as manufacturers in the Great Lakes region drove demand for commodities. Total cargo shipments to the end of April, just over a month after the season began, rose 18% to 3,654,000 tonnes versus the year-earlier 3,099,000 tonnes.
