Ever Given Container Ship Reaches Dutch Port After Suez Canal Debacle

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Ever Given Container Ship Reaches Dutch Port After Suez Canal Debacle” – below is their description.

The huge container ship that blocked the Suez Canal for nearly a week earlier this year finally reached the port of Rotterdam on Thursday to begin unloading its cargo.

As dawn broke over the sprawling port, the Ever Given eased into the Amazonehaven container terminal months later than originally planned.

The Panama-flagged vessel was heading for Rotterdam when it plowed into the sandy bank of a single-lane stretch of the canal about 6 kilometers (3.7 miles) north of the southern entrance, near the city of Suez on March 23.

A massive salvage effort freed the skyscraper-sized vessel six days later, allowing a traffic jam of hundreds of waiting ships to pass through the canal.

It was freed to continue its voyage after its Japanese owner, Shoei Kisen Kaisha Ltd., reached a settlement with canal authorities over a compensation amount following weeks of negotiations and a court standoff.

The Dutch port said the vessel is expected to remain in Rotterdam until August 5, when it will head for the English port of Felixstowe.
