Following our previous communications, we inform you that the Ever Given has been successfully re-floated and the canal is now unblocked. Navigation has been resumed and the first vessels have already passed Suez.
We are still waiting for the precise timeline of vessel departures, and right now we cannot give accurate esteem of the time needed to clear the backlog.
Our offices are at complete disposal to answer all your questions. We shall keep you informed about further developments.
Concerning the situation of the Suez Canal, we inform you that some progress has been made during the last hours. However, we are still not able to provide a precise forecast about when normal operations will be resumed and the time needed to clear the backlog.
As a consequence of the situation, we expect difficulties in finding empty equipment and an increase in blank sailings. Some maritime companies have decided to redirect their vessels following the routing around the Cape of Good Hope.
Our offices are at complete disposal to answer further questions. We will keep you informed about future developments.
We inform you that that Egypt's Suez Canal has been blocked by a container vessel that ran around after losing control.
The Suez Canal is one of the world’s busiest commercial routes. It links the Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea, allowing vessels to navigate from Europe to Asia and viceversa.
This situation is causing traffic jam in the region: with more than 100 cargo vessels waiting to cross the Canal we expect the situation may take several days to be solved. Consequently, there will be more difficulties in finding equipment and we expect delays in import and export operations from and to the Far East.
Our teams are at complete disposal to answer your questions.
We shall keep you informed about further developments.
