Welcome to our lastest Association Member Lake Carriers Association

June 23, 2021

Since 1880, the Lake Carriers Association (LCA) has represented the U.S.-flag Great Lakes fleet, which today can move more than 90 million tons of cargos annually that are the foundation of American industry, infrastructure, and energy: iron ore, stone, coal, cement, and other dry bulk materials such as grain, salt, and sand. LCA’s mission is to promote the common interests of U.S.-flag vessel operators on the Great Lakes by creating change and recognition through legislative and regulatory matters. The association aims to educate legislators, regulators and the general public on the role of Great Lakes shipping in the American economy and maximize the efficiencies of waterborne commerce in a manner that respects our environment.
