Freighters are Delivering Great News for the Local Economy

Grain and steel are making for a banner year at the Port of Toledo. Hundreds of ships have brought in and taken out millions of tons of cargo and that is excellent news for the local economy. You may not think much about it when you see freighters on the Maumee River or out on Lake Erie, but shipping is big business in our region and business is up double digits this year. The Maumee River is a good indicator of the economic health of our region and this year the shipping lanes have been busy.” – WTVG-TV ABC 13
