Notice that the ship's name is Ever Given, not Evergreen like it's written on its side.
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.
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
You can check the real time position of the ship on Vesselfinder or Marinetraffic.
2021.03.29 - According to multiple sources the ship is now free. The Suez Canal is still not open, but it should now be easy to fix this situation.

2021.03.28 - The combined effort of dozen tugboats pushing and pulling were able to move the Ever Given 30 degrees in two directions. Water is now flowing underneath the ship. Suez Canal Authority says that "We expect that at any time the ship could slide and move from the spot it is in"
Tugboats honking their horns to celebrate the 30 degree movement.
