By Bessie Howard on 5 March 2018
Seagirt handles 89 percent of the capacity going through Baltimore, according to BlueWater Reporting data.
   Utilizing the BlueWater Reporting Terminal Analysis tool, the chart above provides an overview of the five terminals at the port of Baltimore, Maryland called by liner services, as well as the deployed capacity (TEUs) calling each terminal. The services deploy fully cellular, pure car/truck carriers, roll-on/roll-off and multi-purpose vessels. Overall, 23 services with a total combined deployed capacity of 385,657 TEUs call the Maryland port.
   The Seagirt Marine Terminal currently sees the greatest deployed capacity at 344,843 TEUs, or 89 percent of the total capacity, on the seven services calling it. Three of these services are operated by the 2M Alliance, two by Mediterranean Shipping Co. (MSC) and one each by the OCEAN Alliance and Hamburg Süd.
   In a distant second is the Dundalk Marine Terminal, with 6 percent of the total deployed capacity. The terminal is called by five services, none of which are fully cellular container services.
   The remaining three terminals: Fairfield/Masonville, MAT Mid-Atlantic and Rukert Marine combined make up five percent of the total deployed capacity or 16,536 TEUs.
