In the wake of the tragic collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge, the nation is in a period of mourning for the lives lost in this devastating event. In response to this tragedy, officials have outlined a tentative schedule for the reopening of the Port of Baltimore, as clean-up operations progress. They anticipate opening a limited traffic channel by sometime in May, with efforts to fully reopen the port being treated as an urgent priority.

Despite the availability of alternative ports along the East Coast to manage the diverted flow of vessel traffic, the Port of Baltimore’s significance, especially for automobile and machinery shipments, makes its timely reopening essential. The Transportation Club of Central (TCC) advises maintaining regular communication with your logistics providers to stay informed about potential impacts on ocean and over-the-road (OTR) freight movements in the region.
