GLIN==> June Great Lakes Iron Ore Trade

Subject: June Great Lakes Iron Ore Trade


Demand was strong again in June, so iron ore shipments on the Great Lakes totaled 6.4 million net tons.  However, the dredging crisis again denied the industry and its customers full loads.  The top loads represented only 91 percent of vessels’ capacity.  One vessel left the loading dock only 81 percent full because the receiving port is so in need of dredging.  See attached for more details.
