CSX Launches Dedicated Service Solution to Mitigate Baltimore Freight Shipment Disruptions

CSX is taking proactive steps to help mitigate freight shipment disruptions in the transportation industry by launching a dedicated service solution between Baltimore and New York, in response to the devastating March 26 incident in which a cargo ship collided with the Francis Scott Key Bridge leading to its collapse. 

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families affected by this tragedy and our sincere appreciation goes to the first responders tirelessly working on recovery efforts.

The CSX service solution, planned for implementation early next week, will help to manage the traffic flow that would typically transit through the Port of Baltimore. Leveraging strategic partnerships with steamship lines, CSX will transport freight between New York and Baltimore through its established international sales network, ensuring continuity for affected shipments.

While the timeline for resuming freight operations at the Port of Baltimore remains uncertain, we are in constant communication with our customers, providing timely updates on the status of their shipments. CSX is fully dedicated to meeting our customers' transportation needs during this challenging period.

We appreciate the understanding and patience of all stakeholders as we navigate this situation together and remain committed to delivering reliable transportation solutions to support our customers through this temporary disruption.

For any inquiries or assistance, customers are encouraged to continue to reach out to their designated CSX sales contact for personalized support and guidance.
