Throughout the world, seaports are known as “engines of job creation.” Bustling seaports are magnets for distribution centers, manufacturing centers, transportation companies, and a host of other value-added activities. Developing new waterborne commerce between the Netherlands and ports such as Detroit, Toledo, and Cleveland has the potential to create a significant number of jobs. The Saint Lawrence Seaway is the minimum mileage route between the Great Lakes and Europe.
