Cargo Management

Federal Maine Terminals, Inc.

Federal Marine Terminals, Inc. (FMT) is in the business of cargo management. We pride ourselves on fast, efficient, and damage-free handling of every type of cargo at our U.S. and Canadian terminals. At FMT, we have expertise in the handling of all types of steel products, project cargoes, containers, forest products, agricultural products, frozen foods, automobiles, and various dry and liquid bulk commodities. We have developed a stevedoring system that uses state-of-the-art proprietary software to track cargo while it is in our care and custody. We boast a well-trained, safety-oriented labor force operating modern cranes, equipment, and gear to provide high-quality stevedoring services for your cargo.

The Northeastern Longshoreman’s Association, NELA Local No. 1, works with FMT to achieve productivity on products such as wood pulp, which exceeds 800 tons per gang hour on multi-lift vessels.

Our local trucking companies work day and night to provide reliable transportation. All employees work diligently and safely to ensure the best production possible.
