GLIN==> U.S.-Flag Cargos Off A Bit In October


U.S.-Flag Lakers moved 11.1 million net tons of cargo in October, a slight decrease from a year ago.  With the best loads still being 6,000 tons or more below vessels’ rated capacity, restoring the Great Lakes navigation system to project dimensions would be an economic stimulus that would not cost the taxpayer or Federal government any additional money.  The Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund has a surplus of nearly $5 billion.  About 5 percent of that - $230 million – would remove the 17 million cubic yards of sediment that are clogging the system.  See attached for more details.
