Detroit/Wayne County Port Authority

About American Anchor

There is no one hero in the story of the Great Lakes. The economic prosperity of the region is due to the efficient and symbiotic connection of The Saint Lawrence Seaway, Great Lakes ports, foreign and domestic vessels, manufacturers, companies, the employees that work there, and their relationship to their local communities. This supply chain is a foundation of our country’s economy. The backbone of our society. It is America’s Anchor.
