(Algoma Central Corporation purchased the Canadian Transport from Upper Lakes Shipping in early 2011. Her new name is Algoma Transport.) The Canadian Transport was built in 1979, the same year additional width was allowed for vessels going through the Welland Canal. That allowed them to add 10 inches to her breadth. She is 730 feet long and 75.83 feet wide. The additional .83 of a foot allows for 31,800 more cubic feet of cargo space. When in Duluth, she usually loads 30,000 tons of low sulfur western coal for Ontario Power at Nanticoke. As the Canadian Transport, she made between 15 and 20 trips to the Twin Ports each season, almost always loading coal.
