May 16, 2024 - Update 9

With the ongoing efforts to reopen the port of Baltimore to direct services, bookings are planned to be resumed for direct loading and discharge on the upcoming voyages below.

Bookings open
AGAS service

  1. Import to BAL - Dubai Express 421n – ETA June 1 (departing Cartagena, CO - May 19; departing Manzanillo, PA – May 20)
  2. Export from BAL - Dubai Express 422S – ETD June 1

AMEX service

  1. Import to BAL – Nele Maersk 417N –ETA June 11 (departing Cape Town, SA – May 23)
  2. Export from BAL – Nele Maersk 422S – ETD June 11

Bookings for Transatlantic services and for Baltimore exports on TP12 have not yet reopened. We will reopen once we have more information on channel conditions for vessels deployed on these services. Imports to Baltimore from Asia are open for acceptance, however are subject to space availability. AGAS and AMEX are open to bookings now because those vessels can use the Fort McHenry Limited Access Channel, which is not accessible for vessels utilized currently on Transpacific or Transatlantic services.

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.

We understand your need for clarity on your cargo, as well as future changes to our routes regarding Baltimore. We are working diligently to identify solutions and will inform you as soon as possible of changes to current and future cargo to Baltimore.

If you have any questions or need further information on your cargo, please reach out to your local Maersk representative. Our teams are on hand to support with your planning, should you need any assistance.
