The accident history of ship that crashed into Baltimore bridge


The 10,000 TEU container vessel Dali that hit Francis Scott Key Bridge in Baltimore has been involved in another shipping accident back in 2016.

In particular, the boxship smashed into a quay at the port of Antwerp in Belgium on 11 July 2016, as it was exiting the North Sea container terminal.

The Antwerp port authorities said the vessel had remained at the dock for repairs for some time after the incident.

The Antwerp accident happened due to a mistake by the Master and pilot on board the vessel, according to VesselFinder reports.

As is evident, Dali's latest accident is notably more severe, likely resulting in fatalities and expected to cause significant challenges to the global supply chain.
