Unloading a Saltie
Cargo coming into the Port of Toledo has changed over time, but still includes a lot of raw materials. The port is seeing a lot more foreign manufactured large pieces coming in. This vessel unloaded its cargo on October 23, 2014. It was a member of the Hansa Heavy Lift company and made its first foray onto the Great Lakes in October 2014 as HHL Elbe. Unfortunately, Hansa Heavy Lift went bankrupt in 2019 and the vessel is now sailing as Hudsongracht for a Dutch company. The Hudsongracht came back to the Great Lakes in October, 2020.
