Notice that the ship's name is Ever Given, not Evergreen like it's written on its side.

What is this about?

On March 23rd, a 220'000 tonne container ship got stuck on the Suez Canal. All shipping traffic is currently interrupted.

Ships that decide to go around will take 9 days longer for US destinations and 14 days longer for European destinations.


How much is this costing?

Besides all the extra time you will have to wait for your new CPU/GPU/Apple Hardware/Japanese stationary to arrive, this will cost shipping companies millions of dollars.

$9.6bn of daily ship traffic is currently interrupted

Real time position

You can check the real time position of the ship on Vesselfinder or Marinetraffic.
