American Roll-On Roll-Off Carrier (ARC), an American transportation and logistics company, has resumed regular calls on the port of Baltimore, starting with the loading of the vessel ARC Integrity on June 16 at the Mid Atlantic Terminal in Dundalk, Maryland.

“We are excited to be part of ARC’s return to Baltimore. Despite the immediate aftermath of the tragedy in Baltimore, everyone stepped up to ensure the nation’s maritime transportation system continued seamlessly. We commend the dedication and adaptability of both the company and the crews,” said president of the Seafarers International Union (SIU) David Heindel.

The “ARC Integrity” resumed its normal operations, loading a typical assortment of vehicles for export, as well as other rolling stock and breakbulk destined for discharge in ports in Europe.

Baltimore is the largest Ro/Ro port in the nation and a critical port for ARC’s operations in support of the U.S. Transportation Command.

For calendar years 2022 and 2023, ARC moved nearly 25,000 units of cargo per year via Baltimore. This makes its opening important not only for the U.S. economy, but also for national security.

“We are coming back strong and looked forward to ARC coming back,” said president of International Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) Local 133 Scott Cowan.

ARC is a 35-year partner to the Department of Defense (DoD), providing American shipping, logistics and land-based services to its servicemembers, as well as the broader U.S. government.
