Ever Given is jointly owned by two companies headquartered in Japan, Luster Maritime and Higaki Sangyo Kaisha. It is leased by Taiwan’s container shipping company Evergreen Marine Corp. (Evergreen Marine Corp.).
After unexpected sandstorms and storms swept the area, the ship made headlines on March 23 when the large container ship sailed off course and ran aground. The tribulation that lasted for several days temporarily slowed the trade in the canal, which promoted 12% of global trade every year.
A tugboat and a dredger successfully released the ship on March 29, after being stuck for nearly a week. According to the “New York Times” report, the full moon produced a “king tide”, with a few inches of tidal flow to help reverse the endless eternity.
According to Lloyd’s list, Ever Given blocked more than $50 billion in global trade after six days of blocking the Suez Canal. Toilet paper, coffee and furniture are the products most affected by Ever Given. Ikea, an international furniture company, said that the Ever Given ship has more than 100 containers on board, and the crisis is expected to delay the supply chain.
The container ship is sitting in the Great Bitter Lake-a large area of water halfway through the canal-and is inspecting it before continuing to its final destination in the Netherlands.
