A total of 11,684,394 short tons traveled through the Port of Toledo last year – the highest tonnage the seaport has seen since 2007. The Port set a record for aluminum handled at the General Cargo Dock, operated by Midwest Terminals, and grain had the strongest year-over-year growth with an increase of 14.79 percent over 2021. 2022 was also the first full operating season for the Cleveland-Cliffs’ Toledo Direct Reduction Plant, driving iron ore tonnage up nearly five percent from the previous year.

The Port Authority invested heavily in infrastructure in 2022. At the General Cargo Dock, over $5 million in repair work has been completed on the dock wall. An additional $10.6 million of work is in progress, which is being funded through the U.S. Maritime Administration’s Port Infrastructure Development Program and the Ohio Department of Transportation’s Maritime Assistance Program.

At the Toledo Shipyard, $640,000 was invested to stabilize a retaining wall and construct pads for the shipyard’s offroad crane to service the dry docks. The Port has also received $9 million from the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency to create additional capacity at the Port Authority’s storage and reuse facility for dredged material. These improvements will provide the Port Authority with 20 years of storage capacity for dredged material.
