Fairfield Marine Automobile Terminal


​Together with automobiles and light trucks, equipment such as tractors, agricultural vehicles, trucks, wheeled cranes and the like makes Baltimore the number-one port on the East Coast for handling Ro/Ro.

The "Fairfield" area of the Port includes four specialized terminals for handling and processing autos, light trucks and similar Ro/Ro cargo. Currently, the entire terminal is leased to Daimler-Chrysler (Mercedes-Benz). This specialized terminal processes autos and light trucks. Typically, this includes accessorizing, minor repair operations and final dealership preparation. The terminal is adjacent to a public berth, also owned by the MPA. A vessel discharging new vehicles can berth within a few hundred feet of the facility.

A second facility, owned by MPA and leased to Mercedes-Benz. This state-of-the-art facility consists of nearly 50 acres, with a 94,000-square-foot building, also designed for processing automobiles. Access is a mere half-mile from the vessel. Plans are under way to add an additional berth to the site.
