Maersk could offer limited Baltimore barge service

Maersk could offer limited Baltimore barge service

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) – Denmark’s Maersk may resume some shipping services at the U.S. Port of Baltimore when a temporary channel is opened to give access for commercially essential vessels that remain blocked by a collapsed bridge, the company said on Wednesday.

“This channel, with a controlling depth of 20 feet, could potentially allow Maersk and other carriers to operate limited barge services into and out of the Port of Baltimore,” Maersk said in a statement.

The group last Wednesday said the port’s alternate shipping channels were not deep enough to accommodate the oceangoing container vessels that Maersk and other carriers use.

A container ship chartered by the Danish group collided with the Baltimore’s harbour bridge last month, causing the structure to collapse. Six people died in the incident.

The Singapore-flagged Dali vessel is owned by Grace Ocean Pte Ltd and managed by Synergy Marine Group. There were no Maersk crew members on board.
