Question description

Toledo Port 
Write a 3 page report on Toledo Port answering the following questions: 

This is from Mr. Capel:
“..One interesting topic might be the switch from steel to aluminum for automotive manufacturing to increase fuel
mileage. At the Port of Toledo and at many Great Lakes ports both products are handled. Traditionally, European steel
has been imported and grain is reloaded on those ocean vessels traveling outbound. Mergers and consolidations have
really shaken up the steel industry in the past decade and traditional supply chains have been disrupted. Some US and
Canadian production has replaced steel formerly imported from Europe. Aluminum has been a growing business for
Toledo‐ We are a designated delivery point for the London Metal Exchange. Our aluminum arrives on barges from the
Canadian smelters.
 How will the trend in the automotive industry impact trade of these commodities on the Great
Also, three reports are now out and available at One is the system economic impact
report. Another is a report on the social and environmental impact of shipping. The third is a report on the safety of
marine transportation. 
 Summarize the results of these studies. 
 Opportunities for shipping petroleum products on the lakes are increasing. Some suggest that these products should
not be allowed on the fresh waters of the lakes. Others believe that marine is a safe way to transport the products
compared to other alternatives (pipeline, rail, truck). 
 With domestic oil and gas production on the rise, there is a debate if the US should be allowed to
export these products to foreign markets. How would this affect domestic and global fuel prices if
US crude is available to foreign countries? 
 Is there enough Jones Act tanker capacity to competitively move product on the water between US
