Baltimore Maritime Exchange Membership Information

The Baltimore Maritime Exchange is a membership supported non-profit vessel traffic information service. Our goal is to provide timely and accurate reporting on all commercial vessel activities both at the Port of Baltimore and the several other ports within the Chesapeake Bay region where deep draft commercial vessel activity takes place.

Members of the Baltimore Maritime Exchange receive access to a secure portion of our website, which displays detailed vessel movement information. Our website is updated 24/7, providing our customers with the most up to-date information. Members also have telephone call in privileges and may reach our watch standers during regular business hours (0800-1600) seven days per week. Additionally, BME members may purchase any of our standard reports, or request quotes for Ad-Hoc reports.
