the Port, Andrews works closely with
12 WWIB employees who process the
trucks. The demand is strong — Isuzu has
been the No. 1-selling low cab forward
truck every year since 1986.
This year, IAAI expects to process and
ship 3,600 units at the Port of Baltimore.
Most of the trucks arrive at the Port on
MOL (America) Inc. vessels.

Northeast and Midwest,” Andrews
said. “We service a few states south of
Maryland also. However, we will ship to
any location a customer requests.”
Andrews added that the Port’s
proximity to dealers is a big advantage.
“It is strategically located along the I-95
corridor, which allows great access for
truck-away business such as ours,” she
said. “Timely deliveries are critical. The
Port of Baltimore supports our vessels
with efficiency and professionalism in
the stevedoring companies used.”

roll-off (ro/ro) cargo is also a plus.

tenants — that form the foundation for
future auto and ro/ro business at the Port
of Baltimore.”
