Metro Ports New Burns Harbor Operator

The Port of Indiana-Burns Harbor has announced that Metropolitan Stevedore Company will become its new bulk terminal operator effective July 1.

Metro Ports will manage the loading and unloading of shipments along the port’s East Harbor for port tenants and outside shippers of bulk cargo, including products for steel making, agriculture, manufacturing, energy and construction.

“Having a 165-year-old company like Metro Ports select Indiana to launch its Great Lakes operations is a tribute to our state’s business climate and our extremely successful port system,” said Ports of Indiana Chief Executive Officer Rich Cooper in a news release.

Among the commodities handled at the port are aggregates, potash, coke, coal, cement, fertilizer, borax, bauxite, RoRo, military, steel, wind energy, yachts and project cargo.

Norfolk Southern provides rail service to the port.
