At least 422 ships were still waiting to go through the Suez Canal Osama Rabie, Chairman of the Suez Canal Authority, said in a Monday news conference that “no ship thought it takes another route, despite the fact that the crisis lasted 6 days because the alternative route was more than 10,000 miles. The Suez Canal is still the safest, shortest, and best service course.”

The Suez Canal Authority decided the ships will be able to cross the Canal on a first come first serve basis, though the ships carrying livestock were permitted to cross in the first convoy of the day he said.  

“We pulled it off!” the company that helped free the Suez ship says 

“The Salvage company which helped in the efforts to free a ship blocking the Canal said in a statement, “WE PULLED IT OFF!” 

“Boskalis announces the successful salvage operation of the grounded 20,000 TEU container vessel ever given in the canal. With a length of 400 meters and a width of nearly 60 meters this giant ship had been wedged in this vital shipping route since 23 March 2021 blocking all shipping traffic ever since.”

The ship has been fully dislodged and is currently floating, Suez Canal Authority says. on Monday, March 29th
