Effort to Expand Muskegon’s Port Activity

Ashton Marine was featured on WZZM 13 News for our first cargo trip into Muskegon, MI with our new ABS Great Lakes hopper barges. This was the first of two trips of road salt being delivered to Muskegon. With the help of other Muskegon companies such as Verplank, Jackson-Merkey Contractors, Great Lakes Dock & Materials, Erickson’s, and Yellow Rose Transport, we were able to successfully deliver the product on time and on budget for our customer. Hopefully, this will be the first of many trips in and out of Muskegon. We have an amazing asset with our deep-water port that we need to utilize more. Increasing cargo activity into the Port of Muskegon can have a huge economic impact by providing more jobs, lowering logistical costs for companies, and providing revenue to local businesses.
