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.

The Port of Baltimore, based in Maryland, USA is ranked as one of the top US ports for handling cars, light trucks, farm and construction machinery, forest products, and imports such as sugar, aluminium and gypsum.
 
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.

Maryland governor Michael O'Malley said in light of the results: "Progress is a choice, and we have made the better choices to invest in the Port of Baltimore.
 
"This record-breaking progress demonstrates that the Port continues to be one of Maryland's greatest economic engines, supporting tens-of-thousands of jobs for Maryland families."
