BURNS HARBOR, Ind. - Steel shipments are feeding a 40-percent increase in shipping at the Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor at the shipping season's midpoint.
The (Munster) Times reports that steel cargoes passing through the port on Lake Michigan have more than doubled this year to feed the automotive industry.
Iron ore and coal are usually two of the largest commodities shipped, but they've been down this year while steel shipments have soared 111 percent higher than during the first half of 2013.
Much of the steel goes to auto assembly plants or is processed at service centers so suppliers can use it to make fenders or other auto parts.
