The Port of Baltimore consists of the Dundalk, Seagirt, Fairfield, North and South Locust Point Terminals. Baltimore is one of the deepest ports in the Eastern US, and it is within an overnight drive of about a third of the nation's population. The World Trade Center building in the Inner Harbor hosts the Maryland Port Administration and numerous companies that operate out of Baltimore's ports.
Dundalk Terminal at 570 acres is Baltimore's largest terminal and it is the hub of transportation of Volkswagens into the US.
The 275-acres Seagirt Terminal opened in 1990 and features seven huge cranes that can handle just about any cargo quickly and efficiently.
The 100 acre Fairfield/Masonville terminal is leased entirely to Daimler-Chrysler for import of automobiles into the US.
North Locust Point is tiny, with just 25 acres of space, and it handles mainly forest products, grain, and latex.
South Locust Point is 79 acres in size, and it handles mainly forest products, as well as ships for Carnival Cruise Lines.
Favorite thing: The 5,000 acre Fort Meade was established in 1917 and named for Civil War General George Meade. The fort was a training camp at the end of WWI, and in WWII it served as a training camp and prisoner of war camp. The National Security Agency (NSA) began operations at Fort Meade in the 1950s, and today the National Cryptologic Museum is perhaps the only part of the fort open to the public.
