GREAT LAKES/ST. LAWRENCE SEAWAY FEEDER SYSTEMS: A FEASIBILITY STUDY
As container traffic has become more generally accepted on the international scene, direct waterborne service to the Great Lakes has not kept pace. This paper explores several possible feeder systems that might provide container service between lake ports and a Canadian ocean port where transshipment to transocean ships could be effected. The paper considers the potential market for such a feeder service and discusses the competitive situation vis-a-vis land transport. The work described in this paper is based, in part, on a study Manalytics Incorporated performed for the Department of Transportation. The author was the project leader on that study.
