As a small trucking company owner in Madison, WI, I wanted to share with you the economic benefit the ferry served over the summers of 2018 & 2019. We were able to shave many miles and costs off by using the ferry to bridge Wisconsin to Michigan. This turned into a cost benefit to our customers and helped us retain a relationship with them during record breaking freight rate hikes. We highly recommend other trucking companies look at the advantages the S.S. Badger Lake Michigan Carferry can provide.
