CLEVELAND (AP) - The Port of Cleveland will soon have a second freighter traversing the Atlantic Ocean.

Despite financial losses on its freighter to Europe, the Cleveland-Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH’-guh) County Port Authority has reached an agreement with its Dutch partner to add a second ship to the trans-Atlantic service.

The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer (https://bit.ly/1uco3sH ) reports that the twice-monthly sails between Cleveland and Antwerp, Belgium, will begin in the spring.

The existing containerized shipping service between the Great Lakes and Europe has lost nearly $3 million since April. That’s more than five times the projected loss.

But port and company officials said Wednesday they are confident the business is going to work.
