The Port of Baltimore said it handled more autos in October than in any other month in the port's history.
In October, 42,830 cars came across Baltimore's public docks, breaking the record of 38,053 cars that was set in March. The port's previous record was 37,552 set in July 2008.
The port said year-to-date, auto volumes are 33 percent higher than in 2009 when it handled about 375,000 cars. Earlier this year, BMW said it would ship 50,000 new cars annually through Baltimore for the next five years. Ford also began shipping its Fiesta model through the port this year.
