Seagirt Marine Terminal consistently achieves high levels of productivity and efficiency - the essential elements of successfully handling the ever-increasing larger vessels and volumes in the Port of Baltimore.
Opened in 1990, Seagirt is operated by Ports America Chesapeake under a 50-year public-private partnership agreement signed in 2010 with the Maryland Port Administration.
Seagirt utilizes advanced technologies and cargo-handling equipment and systems. The design behind this high-tech facility benefits the carriers, cargo owners, maritime industry and surrounding community by keeping cargo moving, reducing truck traffic and mitigating environmental impacts. A progressive labor-management approach complements Seagirt's advanced equipment, technology and systems to further its reputation as one of the nation's most productive terminals.
Ports America constructed a 50-foot deep container berth and funded four state-of-the-art super-post-Panamax cranes, which became operational in 2013.
The $220-million terminal's seven 20-story, high-speed computerized 100-foot gauge (30.5 m) post-Panamax cranes are among the most productive in the industry, averaging 40 containers an hour. Three of the cranes feature dual-hoist systems, which lift two containers simultaneously to expedite loading and discharge. Twelve rubber-tired gantry cranes help stack containers, allowing for more space on the terminal.
Capable of handling 1.5 million twenty-foot-equivalent containers a year, Seagirt's practical yard layout places the storage area directly behind the berths. Enhancing Seagirt's efficiency is the adjacent Intermodal Container Transfer Facility, which brings the railhead to within 1,000 feet of the bulkhead.
The Seagirt computer system's electronic data interface capabilities automatically receive and send information to the terminal's steamship line customers. With just a few keystrokes, the carriers receive instantaneous information on the cargo and equipment, helping them generate timely reports that can boost their efficiency.
