FEDERAL YUKON Has Quick Turnaround

FEDERAL YUKON lifted anchor on Saturday at 0700 and slowly proceeded inbound to Erie. YUKON turned in Erie harbor, docked at the Mountfort Terminal, and after discharging one transformer that was placed on a railcar, departed at 1130 bound for Milwaukee and Burns Harbor to finish discharging cargo.

Inbound. YUKON was built in 2000 and has traded into the Great Lakes ever since. FEDERAL YUKON has ten sisterships in the Fednav fleet, all built at Oshima Shipbuilding in Japan.
