The giant ship Ever Given, which put brakes on maritime trade by blocking the Suez Canal, has finally reached its destination in Rotterdam, Netherlands, after four months of hard work. Due to Ever Given, trade of 42 billion pounds was stalled for a week at sea. The ship was being run by an Indian crew and now its cargo is being unloaded on reaching Rotterdam. Now Amazon has arrived which is much late than its actual time. The ship carrying the flag of Panama was stuck in the Suez Canal on 23 March. It took a week to get it out. Because of this, hundreds of ships had to stand in the sea itself. The director of the Port of Rotterdam said he was relieved to see Ever Given.
This ship stood for 3 months
Now you can take off its huge stuff. This ship will remain there till Monday, after which it will go to France where it will be examined. Three weeks ago the Ever Given ship was parked in the canal of the Great Bitter Lake. Due to financial dispute, this ship stood here for about 3 months. The Japanese owner of this ship made an agreement with the administration of the Suez Canal, after which the ship was allowed to go. The two sides did not say how much money the settlement had reached. Ever given ship was piloted by 25 Indians. The 193.3 km long Suez Canal connects the Mediterranean Sea with the Red Sea. About 30 percent of the world’s shipping containers pass through this route. 12 percent of the world’s goods are also transported through this canal. This canal has been doing business of $ 9 billion daily. Global transport and trade were severely affected by the shipwreck. More than 300 cargo ships and oil containers from around the world were trapped after the giant container ship Ever Given sank in Egypt’s Suez Canal, one of the world’s busiest sea lanes.
