Indiana sets shipping record

February 12 - The Ports of Indiana handled over 12.2 million tonnes of cargo in 2015, surpassing 2014's record volume by nearly 18 percent.

Shipments of coal, steel, bulk commodities and ethanol-related products helped drive significant increases in annual cargo volumes at the three Ohio River and Lake Michigan ports, said the Ports of Indiana.

While shipments of steel doubled at the Port of Indiana-Jeffersonville, it was project and heavy lift cargoes that drove the Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor's growth, as it recorded its second highest cargo volumes in over two decades.

"While we savour the victories our port companies achieved in 2015, we are mindful of the challenges they continue to face with the pressure on fossil fuels and steel prices," said Ports of Indiana ceo Rich Cooper.

"Despite the difficult economy, steel shipments at our ports still reached an all-time high in 2015 with many of our 28 steel companies processing steel for the record number of new cars and trucks sold by the US automobile industry last year."
