The Patapsco Terminal opened in 2009 and is located within a few miles of the Port of Baltimore. The site consists of approximately 180,000 square feet of indoor, high-security, warehousing space. The facility is an approved London Metal Exchange (LME) Warehouse and is an operator of Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) #74. The terminal operates as a storage, transfer and warehousing facility for packaged products.

Baltimore is one of only two Eastern U.S. ports where the main shipping channel reaches a depth of 50 feet. The Port of Baltimore is closer to the Midwest than any other East Coast port and it is within an overnight drive of one-third of the nation’s population.

Our Patapsco Avenue Terminal offers a comprehensive range of services for handling bulk materials, including both packaging and depackaging operations, as well as the ability to accommodate various types of packages and shipment methods.

Depackaging: This involves removing materials from their original packaging, which might be necessary for various reasons such as quality control, repackaging, transport, or further processing.

Repackaging to Supersacks, Pallet Boxes, Drums, Pails, Small Cans, or Small Bags: Depending on the specific requirements of customers or the supply chain, materials may need to be repackaged into different types of containers or packaging formats. This could include supersacks (large bags typically used for bulk materials), pallet boxes (large containers designed to fit on pallets), drums, pails, cans, or smaller bags.
