Port of Baltimore's six public terminals receive an 'excellent' security assessment

For the fourth consecutive year, the Port of Baltimore's six public terminals received an "excellent" security assessment from the Coast Guard.

The annual review grades security operations at the Dundalk, Seagirt, North Locust Point, South Locust Point, Fairfield and Masonville terminals managed by the Maryland Port Administration.

Captain of the Port Mark O'Malley said the continued excellent rating was due to continued training for security and law enforcement officers and upgrades in facilities, including better credentials for workers, a state-of-the-art entry system for trucks and tighter perimeter controls.
