3 Over 300 Years Page 3

4 Mission: Cargo = Jobs The mission of the Maryland Port Administration (MPA) is to stimulate the flow of waterborne commerce through the State of Maryland in a manner that provides economic benefit to the citizens of the State. Page 4

5 Location 150 miles inland closest east coast port to the mid-west easy access to major interstate highways within an overnight drive to 1/3 of America s population Page 5

6 MPA is Part of a Larger Port of Baltimore Community The Port has over 45 miles of waterfront facilities and industries. The 23 private facilities handle nearly all the bulk. MPA s six public cargo terminals handle over 90% of the general cargo. The Port is a complex and healthy mix of Private, Federal, State and Local agencies and facilities.

15 North Locust Point Marine Terminal 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 & Ohio Railroad, and handled many different types of breakbulk, as well as liquid and drybulk cargoes. Today, the 90-acre (36.1 ha) terminal has been redeveloped to enhance the Port's forest products capabilities. The addition of a 45-long-ton (45.7 mt) container crane, coupled with on-dock rail access, allows for the smooth loading and discharge of steel directly between vessel and rail car. Page 15

16 Cruise Maryland Terminal Dedicated Cruise Terminal Designed for passenger convenience and safety Seating for more than 1,000 passengers 40 check-in stations including needs accessible stations Parking for up to 1,500 vehicles on three (3) separate lots Conveniently located less than 200 yards off I-95, at Exit 55, Key Highway Just 2.5 miles from Baltimore s World Famous Inner Harbor Page 16


18 Future Developments Through a series of infrastructure improvement projects, the Port of Baltimore will be in a position to handle the future demands of the maritime industry. Improvements include new berths, rail projects, and enhancements to Port access. All in one of the strongest and growing markets in the country. Page 18

19 Seagirt Marine Terminal Expansion Plan Seagirt has been expanded to a 4 berth operation. Construction commenced in January, New berth was completed March Berth 4 is dredged to 50 feet to accommodate the new panamax vessels. Four (4) super post panamax cranes arrived June Improvements planned to facilitate movement of containers to and from ICTF facility currently located on Seagirt Marine Terminal. Chassis yard being developed adjacent to Seagirt Marine Terminal to improve efficiencies. Port of Baltimore does not have any air draft limitations, water limitations, or terminal congestion issues associated with other ports. Page 19

27 Dundalk Marine Terminal 500 acre multi-use facility, specializing in Autos, Ro-Ro, Forest Products, and Breakbulk/Project Cargoes. Constructing 3 heavy lift pads for the growing demands for Breakbulk and project cargoes. Each pad will have a per axle capacity of 32.5 tons. New rail capabilities to handle direct discharge to rail and additional auto business. $25 million invested in Berths 5 & 6 to strengthen deck capacity and increase water depth to 50. Combined public shed capacity of 825,000 square feet. Page 27

30 Truck Mileage Comparison From: Baltimore Phila NY Norfolk Pittsburgh Indianapolis Buffalo Cleveland Columbus Cincinnati Detroit Louisville Chicago St. Louis Harrisburg Front Royal Toronto The Maryland Highway infrastructure offers fast convenient access to Midwest and East Coast connections, I-95 north/south and I-70 east/west. The State of Maryland has committed $830 million for improvements to Interstate 95 that are currently underway. The Port of Baltimore is closer to 12 major Midwest consumer markets than any other East Coast Port. Shorter inland transit times/distance results in cost advantage to your supply chain. Page 30

35 Panama Canal The Panama Canal is currently being expanded to accommodate larger vessels that typically only called West Coast ports. A series of new locks are being constructed to handle vessels as large 12,600 TEUs. Canal data shows an increase of container traffic moving to the East Coast over the past fifteen years. Increased capabilities that afford economies of scale will increase the percent of Asian cargo moving all water to the US East Coast. Larger vessels calling the US East Coast will increase the market penetration significantly compared to the vessels calling East Coast ports today. Baltimore will be one of the few East Coast ports that will be able to accommodate the new class of vessels with it s channel and berth depth as well as it s terminal capacity and expansion plans. Page 35

36 Summary The expansion of the Panama Canal will accelerate the migration of Asian import cargo to the US East Coast with larger vessels. The combination of air draft restrictions, limited water depth, and terminal congestion puts other East Coast Ports at a competitive disadvantage in receiving larger vessels. Baltimore has the 3rd largest market in the nation as well as the wealthiest and will have the ability to handle the larger vessels of the future by land and sea. Baltimore s inland advantage provides the most cost-effective supply chain routing to the Mid-Atlantic area and points west compared to other East Coast Ports. Page 36
