USA: Bulk Carrier ‘Federal Yukina’ Opens Detroit’s Shipping Season

 

On Saturday, April 7, 2012, the Port of Detroit welcomed the arrival of the ocean going vessel, Federal Yukina. The arrival time was 7:00 a.m. at the Nicholson Terminal & Dock Company, located at 4105 West Jefferson Ave. in Detroit. The ship’s arrival will begin the Port of Detroit’s 2012 shipping season.

“With the advent of the warm weather approaching, it is exciting to welcome the Federal Yukina vessel to the Port of Detroit because it signifies freight transportation throughout the St. Lawrence Seaway. This is vitally important to our economies and security,” says John Jamian, executive director of the Detroit/Wayne County Port Authority (DWCPA).

The Federal Yukina, a Hong Kong flagged vessel, set sail on March 21, 2012 from Teesport, United Kingdom with a cargo of steel products. The ship, 656 feet long with a 78 foot beam, sailed under the command of Captain N.R. Anand. Hong Kong is its home port. On Wednesday, April 11, 2012, Jamian will present the coveted J.L. Hudson Trophy to World Shipping, the ship’s agent at the Port Opening Luncheon. The Luncheon, co-sponsored with the International Propeller Club of the United States-Port of Detroit, will be held at the Port Authority’s Dock and Terminal building located at 130 E. Atwater St. in Detroit (at the foot of Bates Street).
