Port of Calcite

Located just over 1.6 miles southeast of Rogers City is one of The Great Lakes – Lake Huron. The Port of Calcite is situated just along the shores of Lake Huron. Among the five lakes that make up the Great Lakes, Lake Huron offers the deepest bay, diving down to about 93 meters. This is essential for port activities as the depth supports heavy cargo vessels. Shipping cars to or from Port of Calcite is facilitated by this deep harbor that Lake Huron provides.

The Port was founded in the 1910s when Rogers City’s economy was thriving through limestone mining. The great amount of mined limestone opened up business opportunities for export, which was the genesis of the Port of Calcite. It has over the years expanded its cargo portfolio to shipping petroleum products, metal works, and its 2nd largest export yet – cars.

Features that make Port of Calcite ideal for Car shipping

Cargo ships that transport vehicles are normally wider and heavier in nature compared to other cargo ships. This is because vehicles come with heavy tonnage. While Ro-Ro mode of shipping eliminates the extra weight that intermodal containers bring about with containerized car shipping, the draft depth of the bay by far determines the cargo to be handled.

With a draft depth of 53 meters and the depth of the bay of Port of Calcite along the shores of Lake Huron, both the extra tonnage mode of containerized car shipping and the comparatively lighter tonnage mode of roll-on/roll-off mode are accommodated. This by far promotes efficient services of shipping cars to or from Port of Calcite by providing different options to clients.

The port has over the years undergone massive renovations and expansion to increase the size of the service bay, the depth of the cargo pier, and the shelter space. This has seen an increment in the total tonnage handled by the port, which by the year 2013, stood at 5,867,959 in short tons. This figure put Michigan on the map as the Port of Calcite came in 70th overall in trade numbers.
