Baltimore Patapsco Avenue Terminal

The Patapsco Terminal opened in 2009 and is located within a few miles of the Port of Baltimore. The site consists of approximately 152,000 square feet of indoor warehousing space. The facility is an approved London Metal Exchange (LME) Warehouse and is an operator of Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) #74.
