The port of Baltimore's top customer for automobiles and other wheeled cargo such as farm and construction equipment has committed to another three decades at the port, Gov. Larry Hogan announced Thursday.
The contract between global shipping giant Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics and the Maryland Port Administration guarantees the shipper will serve the port through 2045. The deal supports nearly 1,000 jobs at the port and another 1,500 indirect jobs generated by the shipping company's business in Maryland.
"Wallenius Wilhelmsen is here to stay," Hogan said during an announcement of the deal at the port's Dundalk Marine Terminal.
