As Michigan’s only Port District, the Port of Monroe has witnessed a rebirth. As an active seaport and gaining the attention of the entire Great Lakes transportation industry, the Port has achieved its highest tonnage throughputs since its creation in 1932 and received from the State of Michigan the first commercial port funding of its kind for major infrastructure improvements.
In recent shipping seasons, the Port has reported its highest tonnage numbers on record as cargoes were delivered to stakeholders along the River Raisin. Commodities are highly diversified and include staple cargoes of coal, limestone, synthetic gypsum and liquid asphalt, as well as project and break-bulk cargoes that include natural gas pipeline sections, wind blades and wind tower sections.
The Port of Monroe boasts over 85 acres of cargo laydown area immediately adjacent to its deep draft dock frontage, while offering over 300 acres of heavy industrial property for transportation related developments.
