PORT REPORT - 2017
General Cargo
It was another record year for general cargo for the Port of Baltimore’s public marine terminals in 2017! The Port handled 10.7 million tons of autos and light trucks, containers, roll-on/ roll-off (farm, mining and construction equipment), forest products (rolled paper and wood pulp) and breakbulk cargo at the state-owned terminals.
New records were established for general cargo and containers.
Baltimore’s container business also continues to see record growth. Autos saw another great year as Baltimore continues to handle more of that commodity than any other port in the nation. Roll-on/roll-off saw an increase
and overall the Port of Baltimore’s
market share for that cargo
continued to lead the nation.
The Port of Baltimore remains
one of Maryland’s leading
economic engines.
