The Ripple Effects of a Critical Infrastructure Collapse

The collapse of the Francis Scott Key Bridge on March 26 has thrown a wrench into the logistics operations on the U.S. East Coast, especially affecting the Port of Baltimore. With MSC, the world’s largest ocean carrier, redirecting Baltimore-bound cargo to alternate ports, the logistics sector anticipates a maze of container fee disputes. The Federal Maritime Commission’s impending demurrage and detention rule, effective May 26, and the Maritime Transportation Data Initiative (MTDI) project, spearhead efforts to mitigate these challenges by enhancing transparency and streamlining the billing process for delayed container pickups and drop-offs.
