Federal Schelde will load chromium ore

The Federal Schelde came into port very early on Tuesday morning to discharge steel coils (above). It then moved to the Hallett Dock in West Duluth to load chromium ore brought here by train from a stockpile created in World War II near Columbus, Montana. The ship will carry the cargo to Sweden where it is used in the making of steel. This is the third shipment of chromium ore to come through the Hallett Dock this year. Three more are anticipated next year.
