Stewart J. Cort cargo ship arrives at Port of Milwaukee

MILWAUKEE — The 1,000-foot Stewart J. Cort has arrived at the Port of Milwaukee, and it will spend the winter in the inner harbor, according to company officials.

The company said 1,000-foot cargo ships frequently winter in Milwaukee, but it is extremely rare to have a ship that large call on Milwaukee during the shipping season.

The Cort usually carries iron ore from Duluth and Superior to steel mills in Indiana and elsewhere, the company said.
