Infamous Container Ship Due At Felixstowe

 

 

The infamous ‘Ever Given’, known around the world for blocking the Suez Canal for over a week, is finally due to arrive at Felixstowe today, over five months after it left Asia for Europe.

The blockage in March negatively impacted global trade for many weeks to follow, in what had already been a challenging marketplace.

We understand that there are still containers to be unloaded from the vessel, some of which have been on board since as long ago as February.

Since the vessel was removed from the banks of the canal it has been the subject of a financial dispute. Egyptian authorities impounded the ship pending payment of over  $900m of costs, which were later substantially reduced.

After many days and weeks, the vessel was finally released to continue a slow journey to Europe and the port of Felixstowe.

As ever, Atlantic Pacific continue to work diligently to mitigate supply chain disruption during these extremely difficult times. Should you require further information on the above, then please do not hesitate to contact us.
