Vessel blockage in the Suez Canal (MAERSK)

Mon Mar 29,2021 02:04 PM

Dear Customer,


We would like to inform you of the current situation in the Suez Canal where dozens of vessels are stuck after an Evergreen Marine container ship became wedged across, blocking the canal in both directions.


The incident has already created long tailbacks on the waterway, stopping vessels from passing and causing delays.


Rescue boats are working to free the 400m-long (1312ft) vessel, which was knocked off course by strong winds. Svitzer, Maersk provider of towage and safety services, is taking part in the ongoing re-float operations as requested by the Suez Canal Authority (SCA).


Maersk is constantly monitoring the current situation and closely following the refloating efforts of the impacted vessel to further update the accessibility to both south and north bounds.


All customers whose cargo is impacted by the current situation will receive specific information regarding detailed schedule changes and alternative options provided. While out of our control, we apologize for the inconvenience this incident may cause to your business, 

and we will do our upmost to mitigate the delay as best as we can. Your supply chain is of the utmost concern to us and we will continue to keep you informed of all developments.


Should you have any further questions, please contact your local Maersk representative.
Yours sincerely,
Maersk
