Investigators Begin Probing How Cargo Ship Got Stuck in Suez Canal

Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Investigators Begin Probing How Cargo Ship Got Stuck in Suez Canal” – below is their description.

In the end, it took roughly six days and seven hours to undo the minutes of drama that exposed the vulnerability of global trade and captivated the world. It may take longer to figure out how to avoid it happening again.

At just after 3 p.m. local time on Monday, the Ever Given was dislodged from a sand bank in the Suez Canal by tugboats pushing and pulling to rock it loose. To cheers from the dozens of crew working on the effort to refloat it and relief among Egyptian authorities, the enormous 21st century container ship that got stuck in a waterway first opened in 1869 was free. The backlog of about 400 ships started moving that evening.
