2018 Shipping Season

The season got off to a quick start when the motor vessel Mississagi called on the Port of Monroe for emergency repairs. The new Riverfront dock saw frequent use with several steel coil cargoes inbound and bulk cargoes outbound. The Port welcomed the foreign-flagged tanker Iver Bright on its maiden trip into the Great Lakes later in the season.

The highlight of the season was the Port of Monroe’s handling of a unique cargo, crushed refractory brick. The material was loaded aboard the Herbert C. Jackson and taken to Alpena, Michigan for use in the cement making process.
