About a year ago, the container ship “Ever Given” got stuck in the Suez Canal, causing traffic jams and delivery problems around the world for days.

She added that the US Coast Guard is now trying to free the ship. The cause of the cargo ship stranding remains unclear. On the other hand, one thing is clear: the ship needs water at least 13 meters deep. The depth is now only 7.5 metres. According to media reports, no one was injured and the ship was intact.

A fundamental difference from its sister ship, the Ever Given, this time is the location: Hong Kong’s Ever Forward block does not block any trade routes. The Suez Canal is a bottleneck in the global economy, and there is much more room to avoid it on the North American coast. Said William B.

The vessel “Ever Forward” is 334 meters long and is owned by the Taiwanese shipping company Evergreen Marine Corp. Ever Geffen also belongs to the same group. Last year, the 400-meter container ship, an evergreen chartered vessel taller than the Eiffel Tower and weighing 220,000 tons, was stuck in the Suez Canal for six days. The ship and its 17,600 containers closed the canal in both directions, resulting in a backlog of more than 400 vessels.
