Ever Given Passes Through Suez Canal Without Incident

The Ever Given, the 1,312-foot-long container ship that blocked the Suez Canal after it ran aground in March, successfully passed through the waterway on Friday, August 20, marine traffic data shows.

A live map from Marine Traffic shows the ship’s journey through the Suez Canal.

The Ever Given blocked both directions of the highly traveled Suez Canal for six days in March. The ship was then held in the canal’s Great Bitter Lake while the canal and the vessel’s owners negotiated a financial settlement to compensate the canal for the cost of the incident, according to reports.
