Iron Ore trade is down this year on the Great Lakes.

The Lake Carriers' Association released the numbers for 2013 on Friday. They said shipments of iron ore were down 5.3 percent from 2012.

They said the early and harsh winter limited December shipments. Weather delayed ships at loading docks and heavy ice slowed them down on the way in and out.

A total of 58.3 million tons of iron ore was shipped on the Great Lakes in 2013.
