Baltimore improves on last year

November 21 - Business remained strong for the Port of Baltimore through the third quarter of 2012, ahead of last year's pace in several cargo categories.

Through the first nine months of 2012, the port had handled more than 7.2 million tonnes of general cargo at the public marine terminals -a 10 percent increase on the same period of 2011 - comprising containerised goods, autos, forest products, and ro-ro (farm and construction) equipment.

Overall the port saw nearly 30 million tonnes of foreign commerce (general cargo plus bulk cargo) cross its public and private terminal docks, a six percent increase from the first nine months of 2011.

"These strong third quarter results further prove that the Port of Baltimore is on the right track as we recover from the challenging economic period of the past few years," said Maryland governor Martin O'Malley.
