Centralized Location in Southeast Baltimore
Situated in Southeast Baltimore, PGT’s terminal sits within a 10-mile radius of some of PGT’s largest flatbed customers. This prime location ensures a consistent flow of freight year-round, with over 150 loads hauled in the region daily. PGT Baltimore effectively moves freight in all directions – north to New England, west to Pittsburgh and Chicago, and south to the Carolinas and Atlanta.
One of the key strengths of PGT Baltimore is its proximity to the Port of Baltimore, located just two miles away. This international base provides a steady stream of flatbed freight and revenue for both PGT and its drivers. To navigate the secured maritime facilities effectively, truck drivers in the area must possess a Transportation Worker Identification Card (TWIC card) issued by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration. PGT helps our drivers obtain their credentials, opening doors to advanced career opportunities at PGT.
With easy access to major highways like I-95 and 895, PGT Baltimore plays a pivotal role in supporting America’s supply chain. The terminal is surrounded by numerous manufacturers, allowing PGT drivers to transport a variety of goods, including wallboard, lumber, shingles, rebar, pipes, super sacks, steel coils and more.
