The Daily Record and the Greater Baltimore Committee have published a special report on the Port of Baltimore detailing its current business surge that positions it as a major economic engine and job generator for decades to come.
The publication, which was inserted into the March 22 edition of the Daily Record, features reports on key factors that have driven the port’s surge and offers readers a look at opportunities and industry trends that position the port well for substantive new business on the horizon.
The port’s accomplishments during the last several years are significant. Despite operating in an extremely competitive environment, Baltimore’s port was able to strengthen its business during a severe recession and has emerged as a post-recession driver of business growth in the Baltimore region and the state.
“The port’s recent story is one of smart strategy, recognition of competitive opportunities and infrastructure investment for future growth,” said GBC President & CEO Donald C. Fry.
This special publication profiles the Seagirt Marine Terminal partnership with the state and CSX’s planned new intermodal facility – both key infrastructure projects that will define port’s competitiveness in 2013 and beyond.
The publication also reports on other major shipping and marketing developments driving the port’s growth and strategies for the future. Topics include the port’s strengthened cargo-handling infrastructure, its growing success as a cruise port and the many types of jobs and services generated by Baltimore’s working waterfront.
