Container Ship Collision with Major Bridge in Baltimore

Dear Valued Customer, 


A large container ship has struck the Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore, MD early this morning, resulting in a major national and local government investigation that includes the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and local police and fire authorities.


We believe this will be a highly comprehensive investigation that will result in the vessel, and all its cargo, being detained indefinitely. Additionally, all vessel access to the Port of Baltimore has been blocked to allow rescuers to find survivors and authorities to complete their investigations and clear debris. As a result, all vessels bound for the Port of Baltimore are being diverted.


This is an on-going situation and we will keep you updated of any new developments as it becomes available. In the meantime, please reach out to your customer service representative if you have any questions or concerns.



Sincerely yours, 


OEC Group
