Port Sets New Records For General Cargo, Cars

BALTIMORE (AP) — The Port of Baltimore’s public marine terminals set records for general cargo in fiscal year 2013 and consecutive records for cars exported.

Port officials said Tuesday that the port handled 9.55 million tons of general cargo from July 2012 to June 2013, topping fiscal 2012’s 9.33 million tons. In May 2013, 22,897 cars were exported, surpassing the previous record of 22,832 set in November 2012. In June 2013, 22,997 cars left the Port for worldwide destinations.

General cargo includes autos, farm and construction machinery, containers and forest products (rolled paper and wood pulp).

Gov. Martin O’Malley says the port continues to be one of Maryland’s greatest economic engines.
