The saga of the Ever Given, stuck in the Suez Canal for days, goes on. It is sailing again with cargo, but can’t land everywhere, due to restrictions on its propulsion and speed. It is skipping Hamburg.
All this means that many shippers won’t get their cargo soon, despite having paid the general average fees for the disaster. And quite a few have not yet paid the fees.
Anyone who needs the cargo is out of luck till it is discharged and moved on through its supply chain.
I hope the shippers have found alternate ways to get replacement s to those who really needed it on time. But I doubt it.
