The Port of Baltimore handles more autos than any other US port. Why? Its geographic advantage places it about 180 miles further into America’s heartland than any other east coast ports. The Port of Baltimore is located immediately off Interstate highway 95, the main street of the US east coast, and only minutes away from Interstate highway 70 which links to the Midwest. Within 24 hours, autos that come through the Port of Baltimore can find their way to two-thirds of the nation’s population.
Two more reasons for Baltimore’s success with autos are its experienced labor force and four on-site auto processors which can add myriad features to any car. Autos at the Port of Baltimore are more than a successful commodity; they are also a significant job generator. More than 1,150 direct jobs at the Port of Baltimore are generated by the port’s auto business.
The Port of Baltimore – a driving force for the automotive industry.
