Few states can compete with Maryland’s diverse transportation network. Whether your business relies on the movement of people, products or both, Maryland has the resources to address your needs. The State, including the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development (DBED), is also working to grow its world-class infrastructure and create new construction jobs.
Several transportation facilities are adding value and attracting new companies across the State, including the following.
- The Port of Baltimore is one of only two Eastern ports in the United States where the main shipping channel reaches a depth of 50 feet and a width of 800 feet. With the recent construction of a 50-foot container berth and four super-post-Panamax cargo cranes, the facility can now service some of the largest container ships in the world. The port’s convenient location is connected to six interstate highways, including the East Coast’s major thoroughfare, the Interstate 95 system and two Class I rail lines. The port also recently recorded record-breaking cargo hauls and is servicing more cruise ship passengers than ever.
