The Port of Baltimore remains closed following Tuesday morning’s collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge. The US Army Corps of Engineers have been tasked with clearing the entryway to the port that has been blocked by the collapsed bridge. It is unclear at this phase how long it will take for the port channel to become navigable again.

Carriers have begun re-routing vessels to ports elsewhere on the U.S. East Coast. Schedule fluctuations should be expected on East Coast services as a result of these diversions. Terminal congestion is also a possibility as other ports absorb Baltimore’s volumes.

We are committed to working with customers on contingency options for shipments routed to or from Baltimore. Please contact our customer service team if you have any questions about routing options for your cargo.

Additional updates will be provided.
