Federal Leda: First saltwater ship of 2011

Arrived: April 11, 2011 at 7:10 am
The Marshall Islands-flagged Federal Leda was the first saltwater ship of the 2011 season, coming under the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge at 7:10 am on April 11, 2011. With an assist from two local tugs (below), she went over to CHS in Superior to load durum wheat.

The winner of the First Ship contest missed the exact arrival time by only 49 seconds. The Federal Leda began her voyage in Constanza, Romania. On her way here, she first stopped in Windsor, Ontario and Sault Ste. Marie to discharge steel. She loaded 21,000 tons of durum wheat here to take to Italy, stopping first in Quebec to pick up a cargo of titanium slag.
