ECONOMICS OF GREAT LAKES BULK CARRIERS IN WINTER OPERATIONS

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. The intent is to provide a method for predicting costs and benefits accruing to any Great Lakes shipowner who might engage in extended season operations, presented in the form of a computerized model of general applicability. The model must be constructed in a manner that allows easy modification as new facts are gathered from continuing research and development.
