I would send them an e-mail stating that just in case they didn't think of it.

Easiest way to get it unstuck. Land based winch lines on opposite sides of the canal. No tug or dozens of them have the juice to move it. Unloading it. Take to long.

Can you imagine how many shipments of illegal arms and drugs are going to be late because of this? There are going to be some pissed off traffickers..

I read this is costing the world economy $400 million an hour.

Maybe it should just be blown to pieces...

Fate is sometimes ironic.

In 2020, sea freight increased 150% due to the pandemic crisis... then in 2021 a ship blocks the Suez Canal for weeks.

Then perhaps I will get the thingummy I ordered, but don't really need.

Fantastic! I don't have to make a toilet paper run! https://www.cnbc.com/2021/03/29/sue...er-cargo-ship-ever-given-is-removed.html

There are ships North of it waiting to go South and ships South of it waiting to go North.

Is the canal wide enough for two way traffic? It's not how they do it? Send a ship that's North of it to go South and once it exit, send the next ship in line South of it to go North? Only one ship can be in the canal at a time?
