Maryland Governor O'Malley announced that the Port of Baltimore's public marine terminals handled a record 9.55 million tons of general cargo during Fiscal Year 2013 (July 2012- June 2013) besting the previous record of 9.33 million tons set in Fiscal Year 2012. In June 2013 (the most recent numbers available), general cargo at the Port of Baltimore's public marine terminals was up 4.6% from June 2012. General cargo includes autos, farm and construction machinery, containers and forest products (rolled paper and wood pulp).

In 2012, the Port of Baltimore saw 652,000 cars cross its public and private piers, the most of any US port. Earlier this year, the Port began handling Fiat, the newest partner in its large auto profile.

The Port of Baltimore is ranked as the top port among 360 U.S. ports for handling imported forest products, autos and light trucks, farm and construction machinery, imported sugar, imported aluminum and imported gypsum.
