ECONOMICS OF GREAT LAKES SHIPPING IN AN EXTENDED SEASON

The object of the study is to establish a widely applicable procedure for estimating the economic benefits to ship owners by extending the Great Lakes operating season in the movement, essentially, of pelletized iron ore. Each ship on the Great Lakes must be studied for an appropriate extension of service, and an analytical procedure was developed to determine the best length of yearly operation for specific ships. Certain ship characteristics are reviewed for possible means of extending the shipping season.
