The Seagirt Marine Terminal at the Port of Baltimore was closed to trucking transactions for parts of Monday and Tuesday, but has since reopened, according to the Maryland Ports Authority (MPA).
Trucking transactions were closed at Seagirt Marine Terminal for parts of Monday and Tuesday.
A “labor/management issue” resulted in the closure of truck transactions at Seagirt Marine Terminal at the Port of Baltimore for parts of Monday and Tuesday, the Maryland Port Authority (MPA) has confirmed.
The terminal has resumed normal operations as of Wednesday, however, “longer than usual truck lines waiting to enter Seagirt” is causing a backlog in volume, MPA said.
MPA revealed that the incident was between the International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) and Ports American Chesapeake, which operates Seagirt Marine Terminal. ILA and Ports America Chesapeake did not immediately respond to a request for comment. However, the port also revealed that ship operations are normal, despite the trucking backlog.
Seagirt is called by seven major container services, three being 2M Alliance services and one an OCEAN Alliance service. MSC, Maersk Line, Hamburg Sud and Hapag-Lloyd co-operate the remaining three services, according to ocean carrier schedule and capacity database BlueWater Reporting.
