April 15, 2021 – Two weeks after it was freed from the Suez Canal, the giant container ship Ever Given is once again stuck, snared in a legal row between Egyptian authorities and the ship’s owners over the financial impact of the accident. The massive ship has been impounded by a court in Ismailia, as the Suez Canal Authority pursues its Japanese owners for the cost of the salvage operation and lost transit fees for the week that the canal was blocked. Our customers with cargo on board this vessel have already been notified and insurance claims are already proceeding. Please contact your sales representative for any additional information.
