Duluth’s First Saltie of the Season Arrives

The Netherlands-flagged Albanyborg passed under the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge on Sunday evening, becoming the port’s first saltwater ship of the season. The ship docked at the Port Terminal to move bulkheads around before she moves to the CHS elevator in Superior for a load of grain. The Wagenborg vessel was also the first to transit the St. Lawrence Seaway when it opened for the season on March 23.

Indiana Harbor and Herbert C. Jackson remain in layup at Duluth, and with the shipping season having started only a week ago, traffic at Duluth has been quite steady.
