Lower Lakes Towing operates a fleet of six self-unloading bulk carriers and three conventional bulk carriers in Canada. Combined with our U.S. sister companies, we have a combined fleet of 14 vessels. These vessels transport a diverse array of dry bulk commodities including limestone, coal, iron ore, salt, grain and other commodities for more than 50 long-standing customers in the construction, electric utility, integrated steel and food industries.
