Arthur M. Anderson arriving Duluth

The Borkum is coming to Duluth today to load spring wheat. The ship was built in 1994 as the Erna Oldendorff but never came to Duluth under that name. The Borkum is 485 feet long. The Rebecca may depart the Twin Ports with spring wheat for Malta. A 3rd salt water ship, the Clipper Falcon, may also depart here after loading grain. The Canadian flagged Algocape will likely continue loading grain here until Tuesday. The Arthur M. Anderson will be here with limestone to discharge before heading over to Two Harbors to load taconite. Above, it is arriving Duluth in October, 2002.
