Atlantic Erie takes to salt water and fresh

The Canadian flagged Atlantic Erie was here 4 times last year, each time loading taconite. The name reflects the vessel’s ability to work both in the Great Lakes and on the ocean. Unlike most Lakers that come to Duluth, this vessel has been to places such as Spain, Holland and many other international ports, all accessible only by ocean going vessels.
