There has always been the expectation that Muskegon was a significant seaway port for the Great Lakes. In the early sixties….numerous deep water ships visited Muskegon….many carrying Brunswick bowling lanes and equipment to global destinations.
Recently a few ships have visited the port with wind generation equipment. Unfortunately, there is no container loading/unloading facility….so that type of shipping can not be accommodated.
The challenge (and opportunity)….as it has been for the last 50 years….how to use the “Seaways finest” deep water harbor to its best advantage.
Note: Seaway = The St. Lawrence Seaway/access to the Great Lakes from the Atlantic ocean
