About the Port

Economic Benefits

The combined Port-and-River system is a major driver in the regional economy. The following analysis of economic benefits is derived from the cargo handled by public and private maritime facilities along the downtown Lake Erie shoreline and the navigational channel of the Cuyahoga River; impacts are for calendar year 2008.

Policy Implications

Maritime activities are vital to the regional economy and the numbers show what could be lost if the River and the deep depth of the navigational channel are not properly maintained. Preserving the channel and the maritime industry are critical responsibilities woven into several policies of the Port’s 2011 Strategic Action Plan.
