March 15 - Canada's Port of Hamilton saw cargo tonnages grow by three percent year-on-year during 2012 to 10.3 million tonnes.

Project cargo volumes surged three-fold over 2011 levels. During 2012 the gateway handled windmill components, power plant process towers, rail cars and nuclear plant rotors.
"The Port of Hamilton is well-positioned to move heavy cargo due to its strategic location on the Great Lakes, in close proximity to manufacturing and population centres in Canada and the US, and access to global destinations," commented Bruce Wood, Hamilton Port Authority president and ceo.
