It is not often that you open social media or news apps (or newspapers) and see a gigantic container ship wedged between the two ends of the Suez Canal, leaving just enough space for a little canoe to pass through. Of course, canoes cannot transport containers. As the Suez Canal came to a halt last month for a period of 6 days and 7 hours, a traffic blockage was caused, preventing containers ships from moving through the waterway. The repercussions: delayed shipments, delayed trade, ships were taking longer routes via the Cape of Good Hope and finally, distressed customers and freight forwarders.
