Bookings for Transatlantic services and Baltimore exports on TP12 have not yet reopened. According to Maersk, these will reopen once more information regarding the channel conditions for vessels using these services is available.

Imports from Asia are accepted in Baltimore but are subject to space availability.

Maersk noted that AGAS and AMEX are now accepting bookings since their vessels may utilise the Fort McHenry Limited Access Channel, which is not available to vessels currently operating transpacific or transatlantic routes.

A representative of Maersk said: “Please note the situation in the Port of Baltimore remains fluid and booking is contingent on space availability.

“Our ability to call Baltimore will ultimately rely on the refloating timeline and the Captain of the Port officially opening the port and/or the fourth alternative channel that was previously closed. Vessels may be re-directed to another USEC port if the timeline prevents us from calling Baltimore.”

Recently, Maersk opened a dedicated cross dock warehouse in Rotterdam at the Maasvlakte II terminal.
