Seagirt Marine Terminal:
The Seagirt Marine Terminal stands as a working monument to the innovative and progressive spirit of the Port of Baltimore. Opened in 1990, Seagirt features the latest in cargo-handling equipment and systems. The design behind this high-tech facility stems from one simple principle: keep the cargo moving. The computerized gate complex serves as the nerve center for the 284-acre container terminal. Four Neo-Panamax cranes are capable of handling ships with a draft of 50' and upwards of 14,000 TEU, adding to the seven Post-Panamax cranes present. Sixteen rubber-tired gantry cranes, at $1.5 million each, help stack containers, thus allowing for more spaces on the terminal. Seagirt averages nearly 40 container moves per hour per birth.

Dundalk Marine Terminal:
With 13 berths, six container cranes and direct rail access, the 570-acre terminal remains the largest and most versatile general cargo facility at the Port of Baltimore. This terminal handles containers, automobiles, farm, construction, and other roll-on/roll-off equipment, wood pulp, steel, and many other forms of cargo.

North Locust Point:
Over the past century, North Locust Point has adapted and changed to meet the varied needs of the Port. It has welcomed immigrants, served as a cargo pier for the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, and handled many different types of breakbulk, as well as liquid and drybulk cargoes. This 90-acre terminal includes 19 acres of outside storage and direct rail access.
