Virtual Event
Join the Transportation Research Forum (Minneapolis-St Paul & Twin Ports Chapters) for a discussion on plans for developing and deploying international, intermodal containers in the Twin Ports.

Duluth Cargo Connect, a working partnership of Duluth Seaway Port Authority and Lake Superior Warehousing, received regulatory authority in fall 2021 to accept steamship-owned, international intermodal shipping containers via waterborne vessel at its facility in Duluth, Minn. This development creates another option for containers to reach inland destinations, potentially bypassing congested areas such as the ports of Los Angeles / Long Beach or major rail interchanges, such as Chicago. In this session, Jonathan Lamb of Lake Superior Warehousing will discuss the plans for the development and deployment of this new intermodal capability. A short response about the opportunities and challenges presented will follow with time for questions from attendees.
