Growth in Great Lakes

January 19 - The Port of Hamilton revealed its 2016 figures for heavy lift items, showing a 6.7 percent increase on the five-year average.

More than 52,000 cu m of heavy lift items, such as windmill blades and heavy equipment, transited the port in 2016.

The Port of Hamilton says that it serves as a strategic location for the import and export of machinery and components for Ontario's manufacturing and energy sectors.

In 2016, 562 vessels visited the Port of Hamilton, carrying 9.28 million tonnes of cargo, exceeding the 2015 season total by 0.4 percent.

This modest increase in Hamilton's cargo is in contrast to the overall Seaway cargo totals, which fell by 3 percent in 2016. The Hamilton Port Authority claims it continues to hold its position as the largest Canadian Great Lakes port (as measured by cargo volume).
