Federal Weser will take grain out

The Federal Weser, built in China in 2002, should be departing Duluth today with a cargo of wheat and flax destined for Ghent, Belgium. She was here once last year and twice the year before. Like many Fedmar ships, the Federal Weser is named for a river, this one in West Germany.
