Port of Baltimore's 300th Anniversary   Three hundred years ago, in April 1706, the Maryland Legislature designated an area off the tip of Ft. McHenry called Whetstone Point, as the Port of Baltimore. It soon became a hub of international commerce and a thriving maritime community sprung up to keep it going. It was and still is the gateway to the world bringing in goods to be shipped by truck and train throughout the country and sending exports throughout the world.

Maryland - Gateway to
American Marketplace
Maryland Industry
Maryland is a natural international gateway to the American marketplace. Strategically located midway along the East Coast of the United States, Maryland provides the ideal base from which to serve the largest consumer and industrial markets in North America. No other U.S. market allows merchandise to be imported from or exported to retailers and end-users as quickly and economically.
