Great Lakes-Seaway Shipping is the Safest Way to Move Cargo

Great Lakes-Seaway shipping has an outstanding safety record. Compared to other modes of surface transportation, marine shipping is least disruptive to the general public, has fewer accidents, and fewer workplace injuries. Our outstanding safety record is the consequence of a pervasive safety culture, well trained and licensed workforce, robust regulatory oversight, and the use of advanced navigation technology. As evidence, a 2014 study of 69,960 voyages between 2002-2011 showed that 98.9 percent were accident free. Of these, 100 percent were fatality free.
