The Georgia Ports Authority last month experienced its busiest February ever with throughput totaling 2.94 million short tons.  That was up 10 percent from February 2016, and second only to this January's 3.01 million tons.

Cargo traffic declined last year at the Port of Windsor, almost entirely due to the wind down of construction on the customs plaza that will service the new Gordie Howe International bridge between Windsor and Detroit.
