BALTIMORE, Dec. 3, 2020 (Local News) -The Port of Baltimore handled more containers and general cargo in October than any other month this year, thanks in part to strong demand for e-commerce amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The port handled 60,724 containers in October, up more than 10% compared to October 2019. However, containers are still down about 6.2% year-to-date to 522,452. Similarly, the 987,679 tons of general cargo the port handled in October represented a 5% increase year-over-year, though general cargo tons remain down about 8.6% year-to-date to 8.52 million, according to the Maryland Port Administration.
