Egypt's Suez Canal Authority Says Shipping Backlog Cleared

The MV Ever Given was wedged diagonally across the Suez Canal and was refloated on Monday

Cairo, Egypt:

Egypt’s Suez Canal Authority said Saturday that a shipping traffic jam caused by a giant container vessel getting stuck on the crucial waterway for almost a week has been cleared.

“All the ships waiting in the waterway since the grounding of the… (MV) Ever Given have completed passage,” SCA chief Osama Rabie said in a statement by the canal authority.

The 200,000-tonne megaship was refloated on Monday, by which point the backlog had reached more than 400 vessels.
