Rand Logistics Provides Business Update

NEW YORK, Dec. 8, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rand Logistics, Inc. (Nasdaq:RLOG) ("Rand") today announced that all four vessels that experienced unrelated mechanical incidents in the fiscal second quarter are now fully operational. The Company also reports that the plans to convert its last steam-powered vessel, the Michipicoten, to diesel power are expected to commence on schedule in mid-December and it forecasts that the repowered vessel will be fully operational in the spring of 2011.

Scott Bravener, President of Lower Lakes stated, "We lost approximately 19 sailing days in October arising from repairs to the final two vessels that experienced mechanical incidents in the fiscal second quarter, and we did not lose any sailing days in November. Notwithstanding the October loss in vessel sailing days, our October results exceeded our results for October 2009, driven by an overall increase in demand in our markets, as compared to the same period last year. While weather conditions during November 2010 were challenging compared to the benign weather conditions we enjoyed during November 2009, our fiscal third quarter results remained in-line with our expectations as a result of ongoing steady customer demand for our services."
