Medemborg is first boat from ocean

The Medemborg was the first vessel to arrive in the Twin Ports this season after a full transit of the St. Lawrence Seaway. It came in on Sunday morning and is seen above at the General Mills grain terminal in Duluth on Monday morning. It is expected to depart sometime today with 8,100 metric tons of beet pulp pellets for Morocco. The third and fourth salt water vessels arrive on Monday, the Sabrina, loading wheat, and the Federal Schelde, iron ore pellets. All but the Sabrina are expected to depart today.
