Half a world away in Antwerp, Belgium, Heavy Lift and Project Forwarding International selected Duluth Cargo Connect as the publication’s 2019 Worldwide Port/Terminal Operator of the Year.


An international panel of industry experts selected the award winners. The criteria included: 1) Demonstrated safe and efficient handling of oversized cargo. 2) Investment in new equipment and facilities for the storing and handling of oversize cargoes. 3) Maintenance of existing facilities. 4) Minimized wait time for customers.

“We’re honored to accept this award and we appreciate the recognition for our terminal,” said Jonathan Lamb, president of Duluth Cargo Connect. “It’s a big world of ports and operators, so being selected at the head of that class for 2019 is something special.”

Nearly 50 employees power the terminal operations, earning a reputation worldwide as Lake Superior’s primary destination for dimensional and heavy-lift maritime cargo.

Duluth Cargo Connect is a working partnership between the Duluth Seaway Port Authority and Lake Superior Warehousing.
