'Cleveland-Europe Express' Makes Maiden Voyage

Cargo traded between the U.S. and Europe usually goes through East Coast ports. But a new direct route between Belgium and the port of Cleveland, Ohio, aims to score some business of its own.

The inaugural voyage kicked off last week. A container ship laden with a bus, some beer and high hopes is on its way to Antwerp.
