August 7 - The Port of Baltimore's public marine terminals handled a record 9.55 million tonnes of general cargo during FY2013 - measured July 2012 to June 2013 - up 2.4 percent over FY 2012.

Baltimore's public piers set consecutive records for the number of cars exported in a single month. In May 2013, 22,897 cars were shipped from the gateway, surpassing the previous record of 22,832 set in November 2012. This record was broken for a second time in June 2013 when 22,997 cars were exported from the port.
