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.

Over 20,000 jobs and $3.5 billion in annual economic activity are tied to the roughly 13 million tons of cargo that move through Cleveland Harbor each year. The Port of Cleveland is the only local government agency whose sole mission is to spur job creation and economic vitality in Cuyahoga County. The Port is an economic engine for our community, a key to Northeast Ohio’s global competitiveness, and a crucial partner in building Cuyahoga County’s future.
