‘Issuez Resolved’: Amul celebrates as Ever Given was freed in Suez Canal

After almost a week the huge container ship was freed from the Suez Canal

"It showed and reaffirmed the reality and importance" of the canal, Sisi said as he greeted staff on a visit to the Suez Canal Authority in Ismailia.

The probe will examine the vessel's seaworthiness and the crew's actions.

Officials said Tuesday the backlog of ships trying to pass through the Suez Canal could take about four days to work through, following almost a week in which the vital waterway was blocked by a massive container ship.

More than 140 ships have passed through the canal since it was unblocked, as the SCA attempts to clear a traffic jam of some 400 vessels to the north and south.

The Japanese owner of the Ever Given said it had not received any claims or lawsuits over the blockage.

Some 12 percent of the world trade volume passes through the Suez Canal.


The ship got stuck sideways in a narrow stretch of the canal, shaking the global shipping industry when it halted billions of dollars a day in maritime commerce for around a week.

Rabie has suggested that the weather and human error could have played a role in grounding the Ever Given.

Navigation through the canal was officially resumed on Monday.

Bruce Carnegie-Brown told Reuters it was too early to give an exact figure, but estimated that it could amount to $100m (£73m) or more.

Knock-on effects to global shipping and at ports could take much longer to disentangle. "So it will mean delays there". "We know that China, for example, is short of empty boxes [containers] to be filled because they are being delayed as well".
