Federal Yukon will take wheat to Italy

The Federal Yukon arrived in Duluth late Thursday afternoon (above) and went over to the CHS grain terminal in Superior to load durum wheat for the port of Bari, on the east coast of Italy, on the Adriatic Sea. The ship loaded general cargo in Brazil that it unloaded at Hamilton, Ontario before coming to Duluth in ballast (empty). It is named after the Yukon River in Canada, has an all Indian crew and flies the flag of Hong Kong. Photo taken on November 08, 2007.
