Shipments continue to be strong according to the Port of Thunder Bay.

Specifically potash shipments have increased by 31 percent over June of last year.

Last year the amount of the mined and manufactured salts hit a 32 year high.

However, it notes a slower start to potash means year to date volumes are still behind last year’s high.

Meanwhile, grain has also recovered considerably over last year, with year to date volumes 760 thousand metric tons higher than June 2022.

Keefer terminal continues to see large cargo shipments move at a steady pace, including wind turbine components.

Additionally cruise ships are on this rise this year, with seven arrivals in port last month, with many more planned for this year, as compared to nine arrivals total for all of 2022.
