Yarmouth draws near Aerial Lift Bridge

The Yarmouth was built in 1985. Owned by a Norwegian company, it once sailed as the Federal Oslo. It will be loading bentonite today and Sunday before departing with that cargo for Amsterdam. Since Amsterdam is a big transshipping port, the cargo will likely be transferred to another boat, a truck or a train for transfer to a further destination, probably in Europe.
