Canadian Shipments Pushing Record


canada145x97September 16, 2013 – Good news from up North. Fueled by road construction across the region, shipments passing through the Port of Windsor, Canada, are on a record pace and could break a mark set in 2006. Port authority CEO David Cree said that the record of 5.778 million tons set seven years ago could be broken this year because of an increase in liquid asphalt shipped through the recently expanded Sterling Marine Fuels Terminal. As well, construction of the Herb Gray Parkway has generated record volumes of construction aggregates through the Lafarge Canada Terminal.
