On March 24, container vessel EVER GIVEN ran aground in the Suez Canal, blocking one of the world’s busiest sea routes for the last few days.
More than 100 vessels are currently blocked in the occurred traffic jam.
The backlog is sure to have enormous repercussions on European port terminals and schedules and might cause heavy congestion.
Unfortunately, this traffic jam could also impact our supply chain, and we cannot exclude that future deliveries could face delays.
Further information will follow as soon as the scope of the actual consequences on our activities is clear.
