Cargo ship the Ever Given freed from the Suez Canal
The massive cargo ship the Ever Given has been dislodged from the Suez Canal after being wedged for close to a week. The 400-metre-long cargo ship, one of the largest in operation in the world, was successfully re-floated a short time ago, according to shipping monitors. The Suez Canal is one of the world’s most strategically important shipping routes and one of the highest traffic routes. The blockade of the canal had major trade ramifications including a dip in the oil price, but after 12 tugboats and land-clearing crews worked day and night to dislodge the ship, the Ever Given is expected to resume its journey.
