Baltimore bridge crash causes supply chain concerns

Officials have said that maritime traffic through the Port of Baltimore - which last year amounted to more than 47 million tonnes of foreign cargo - will be suspended until further notice.
 
This comes after a container ship crashed into a bridge on Tuesday.
 
Director General at the Institute of Export and International Trade, Marco Forgione, says the suspension could have a significant ripple effect on global supply chains.
 
Mr. Forgione says more than 750,000 cars and vehicles passed through Baltimore in the last year.
 
These include US, UK and EU brands such as General Motors, Ford, Jaguar Land Rover, Nissan, Fiat, and Audi.
 
Baltimore is the busiest US port for car shipments, and also the largest US port by volume for handling farm and construction machinery.
