Marine Services and Development

  • Over 900 acres reserved for marine-associated activity
  • Development focused for multi-commodity capabilities

Design features to include:

  • Economical transit buildings for covered storage
  • Ample laydown space for project cargo, bulk / break-bulk cargo, and auto ro-ro storage
  • Reserved acreage for drop-lot / transfer lot for non-TWIC drivers
  • Rail-serviced sites for transloading of dry and liquid bulk

Automobile Roll-on / Roll-Off Facility

Tradepoint Atlantic recently developed a fully functional 21 acre lot for Pasha Automotive Services and their roll-on/roll-off  operation of imported automobiles.   Pasha Automotive Services is a subsidiary of The Pasha Group, a global logistics and transportation company. 

This new facility is uniquely positioned in the Port of Baltimore’s well established auto/ ro-ro industry and is connected to rail service provided by both CSX and Norfolk Southern.  Additional storage capacity plans range from 150-200 acres.  A sample rendering of our proposed plans for a terminal on the east side of Coke Point is shown below.

Environmental

TPA Environmental Process

  • The consent decree maintained status quo, but did not lead to cleanup
  • In 2014, Tradepoint Atlantic signed agreements with EPA and MDE to enter the Maryland Voluntary Cleanup Program, and provided $48 million to secure completion of work
  • Established a dedicated team to monitor and manage the environmental cleanup process
  • Phase II investigations are underway
  • Investigation results will drive development of response action plans (RAPs), which are subject to public comment
