When a massive container ship rammed into the Francis Scott Key Bridge near Baltimore last week, it blocked one of the nation’s busiest ports in the Port of Baltimore.  Emergency crews are still surveying the damage but it will take months to clear the wreckage and get the river back open for cargo.  Georgia’s two major ports – the Port of Brunswick and the Port of Savannah – will be among those called upon to pick up the slack, particularly when it comes to vehicle cargo.  Brunswick in particular is already the number two port in the U.S. for vehicles, behind only Baltimore, so it will likely see traffic increase from the 900,000 cars it brought in last year.  All hands are on deck following the Baltimore disaster, and Georgia’s ports are ready to help keep the nation’s cargo lines flowing.
