Inland Lakes Management Incorporated

Inland Lakes Management Inc. was founded in 1996 and continues providing marine transportation services including cargo movement to this day. The headquarters is in Muskegon, Michigan. The Inland Lakes Management Inc. flag is a five-foot-long rectangular red flag with a blue border and white text in the center, “L I M.” The “I” in the center is bigger than the “L” and “M.” 

The origins of Inland Lakes Management Inc. began in 1987 when Huron Cement was acquired by the LaFarge Corporation. Huron Cement was a company with a fleet of vessels that hauled dry powdered cement from the Huron Cement plant in Alpena, Michigan to their distribution terminals around the Great Lakes. After this acquisition, LaFarge Corporation formed the subsidiary Inland Lakes Transportation to manage the fleet. By the 1990s, Inland Lakes Management, Inc was created and continued to manage various vessels of the old Huron Cement fleet. Similar to the Huron Cement fleet, the colors red and white appear incredibly significant as they are seen on vessels and on the flag of Inland Lakes Management Inc.
