Since becoming the port​ of entry for the first Volkswagen Beetle in 1963, the Port of Baltimore has delivered top-rate automobile service and handling capabilities. Today, Baltimore is the No. 1 automobile Port in the U.S.



  • ​Baltimore's strategic Mid-Atlantic inland location 150 miles further inland than any other Mid-Atlantic port means shorter distances between manufacturer, port and market, making exports a day closer.
  • Imports quickly reach dealers and consumers in the fast growing Baltimore-Washington consumer market, one of the largest and wealthiest in the nation.
  • Baltimore has close proximity to major interstates I-95 and I-70. We offer on-dock rail service with two Class 1 rail carriers, Norfolk Southern and CSX, with direct connections to the Midwest.
  • Baltimore has all RoRo carriers calling Baltimore, ensuring your vehicle can get to any destination!

Baltimore is the Top Auto Port 

  • ​Quality: Each vehicle receives the utmost care - from ship to processing facility and dealer delivery. The Port of Baltimore's Quality Cargo Handling Action Team (QCHAT) program is recognized worldwide as the most successful port-wide quality care program in the country. The QCHAT group meets monthly and includes all segments of vehicle handling and auto manufacturers. Major improvements in quality vehicle handling have resulted in reduced damage and advanced training programs.
  • Innovation: A bar code scanning system captures detailed information about every vehicle moving through Baltimore and the drivers who handle them, thereby tracking inventory and reducing damage.



  • At the Dundalk Marine Terminal, approximately 300 acres are devoted to automobiles and other Roll-on/Roll-off (Ro/Ro) cargo.
  • The 160-acre Fairfield/Masonville Terminals are home to much of Baltimore's public state-of-the-art auto processing and handling facilities. Adjacent to these facilities, the privately owned Chesapeake and Atlantic auto terminals also provide 250 acres for automobile processing and storage. The combined space auto handling terminals in the port offer a total of 710 acres for autos and RoRo cargoes.
