Picture above taken Tuesday, September 27, 2005 when they were here loading flax. Later they departed for ARAG. ARAG is not a new country, it is a shipping term that means Amsterdam-Rotterdam-Antwerp-Gent, meaning in this case, the ship will carry the flax to one of those ports. At this time, the Captain does not know. That decision will be made elsewhere and sent to him while he is under way, perhaps on the Atlantic Ocean headed for ARAG. Amsterdam and Rotterdam are cities in the Netherlands; Antwerp and Gent are in Belgium.
She was the first vessel in 2011 that transited the entire St. Lawrence Seaway system of 2011, arriving April 11.  She began her voyage in Constanza, Romania. On her way here, she 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. With an assist from two local tugs, she goes over to CHS in Superior to load durum wheat.

    They are no longer registered from Cyprus as they had their flag and port of registry changed just a few short years ago now. The new flag of registry is the Marshall Islands with the port of registry being Majuro. Sister Ships to the Federal Leda are the Federal Danube, Federal Elbe, Federal Ems and Federal Weser. All of them at one time were registered from Cyprus however, they have since been re-flagged and are now from the Marshall Islands with Majuro as their port of registry. It seems that Fednav lately has been re-flagging many of their ships to the Marshall Islands lately with several of the “Oshima-class” bulkers now going to the Marshall Islands as well.
