Despite its massive size, it has been a somewhat reclusive resident of Superior's Belgian neighborhood of Allouez since 1892. The Twin Ports largest taconite transshipment facility, it has a total dock capacity of 73,156 tons of iron ore, but stockpile capacity (5.2 million tons) in its Allouez yard is far higher. The pellets are moved by conveyor belt up and over the town to the dock.
