Why the Port of Conneaut is ideal best for car shipping
The management of the port is handled by Conneaut Port Authority through a board of directors. Its main responsibility is to ensure that the port is run professionally for the benefit of auto transport companies and other clients. Shipping cars to or from Port of Conneaut is done on the Pittsburgh & Conneaut Dock (P&C Dock). The terminal is spread across 119 acres of the south shore of Lake Erie. Its interior has been divided into separate docks for easier storage of materials and vehicles. The lower and upper facilities of Port Conneaut can unload up to 400 rail cars daily. Also, the three docks within the facility can hold bulk cargo of up to 800,000. But when its capacity is stretched, it can accommodate two million tons annually.
The services at the port are computerized, making it easier to get customer information from shipping companies. The information is used to retrieve their vehicles from the storage areas and then loaded onto truck carriers. Also, the dock has an internal transportation system that delivers vehicles being shipped to vessels for shipping to various destinations. Both Roll on roll off and container shipping is allowed on the port. Barge-to-rail services are also available at Port Conneaut which connects the harbor to Duquesne Wharf. The services make delivery to the port using inland waterways much faster for shipping companies.
