Put to bed: Winter layup brings 4 ships to port of Duluth-Superior


Mark Barker, president of Interlake Maritime Services, which manages the steamship company, described the season as “one of the most dynamic in recent history.” “It wasn’t necessarily a banner year for cargoes carried,” Barker said, “but I’m extremely proud of the resourcefulness and responsiveness of our entire industry and especially the women and men onboard our ships in keeping the American economy moving forward these last 10 months.”
