Come learn how to successfully file your export information in this hands-on PC training workshop.

On the third day, the Baltimore Port Tour includes an on the ground look at the operations of Dundalk and Seagirt Marine Terminals. Dundalk is a multi-purpose terminal and the site of the Number #1 Ro-Ro Facility. Seagirt is a pure container terminal. From the bus, you will be able to see the truck inbound and outbound procedures; vessels and cranes during the loading and discharge operations.

Because these are secure facilities, you must have your ID with you; no photographs are allowed to be taken and you must stay on the bus at all times while inside the terminals.

All training is provided by the U.S. Department of Commerce/ U.S. Census Bureau/Foreign Trade Division and U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
