1. Imports to Baltimore: Nele Maersk 417N – ETA June 11 (departing Cape Town, SA – May 23)

Bookings for Transatlantic services and Baltimore exports on TP12 remain closed, pending further information on channel conditions. Imports from Asia to Baltimore are currently accepted but are subject to space availability.

Maersk highlighted that AGAS and AMEX bookings are possible as their vessels can utilize the Fort McHenry Limited Access Channel, which is not accessible for vessels on transpacific or transatlantic routes. A representative emphasized that the situation at the Port of Baltimore is fluid, with bookings contingent on space availability and the official reopening of the port or the alternative channel. Vessels may be redirected to another USEC port if necessary.
