U.S. steel inventories at the end of January totaled 8.03 million tons, 28.3% more than January 2010 stockpiles and equal to a 2.4-month supply at current shipping levels.

In Canada, January steel shipments from metals centers totaled 545,100 tons, a rise of 22.7% from January 2010 and substantially higher than shipments of 380,800 tons in December. End-of-month inventories of 1.48 million tons were 25.1% above stocks at the end of January 2010 and equal to a 2.7-month supply.

January aluminum shipments from U.S. metals service centers of 121,400 tons were 29.7% above January 2010 shipments and well ahead of December shipments of 100,300 tons.
