Ceres increases Baltimore ro/ro presence
The Maryland Port Administration said Thursday that Ceres Terminals Inc. has signed a lease for 12 additional acres at the Port of Baltimore's Dundalk Marine Terminal.
Ceres already leases five acres at Dundalk from the MPA and the new additional acreage will potentially enable Ceres to attract new roll-on/roll-off and breakbulk customers. The port said H'egh Autoliners has moved its European Service vessels to Dundalk, while Ceres Marine will also handle ro/ro and breakbulk for 'K' Line's South America/Middle East Service vessels and NYK Line's South America/Europe/Middle East Service vessels.
'This agreement will further strengthen our top U.S. market share for roll-on/roll-off cargo,' said MPA Executive Director James J. White. 'Ceres handles many of the world's top roll-on/roll-off shipping lines, and we welcome their increased presence at our port.'
