At about 8 am Egypt time (2 pm Beijing time) on March 23, 2021, the Panamanian freighter Ever Given of Taiwan Evergreen Group ran aground on the Suez Canal. The ship is about 400 meters long, 60 meters wide, and has a displacement of about 220,000. Ton. The ship stopped in the canal almost completely sideways, causing the Suez Canal, one of the most important waterways between Europe and Asia, to be cut off. The Suez Canal has been banned without warning.
Taiwan's Zhongshi News Network and many other media reported that Ever Given, the super-large container ship of Taiwan Evergreen Shipping, was stuck in the Suez Canal on its way from Yantian Port in Shenzhen, China to Rotterdam in the Netherlands on the 23rd, making this one of the world's most busy. The two-way traffic of the canal is congested. On March 25, the Egyptian Suez Canal Authority stated that it had temporarily suspended traffic on the Suez Canal.
As of March 27, the Ever Given has been trapped for the fifth day. On March 28, local time, the person in charge of the Suez Canal Authority stated that the President of Egypt had ordered freighters to reduce the burden.
