After blocking the Suez Canal for a week, the Evergreen cargo ship Ever Given is now free and sailing as a result of extensive hours-long towing efforts by over 10 tugboats. According to Leth Agencies, a service provider and transit agent at the Suez Canal, the Ever Given is currently sailing north on its way to the Bitter Lakes. With the Ever Given - which is one of the largest cargo ships in the world - now dislodged, traffic is prepared to resume at the Suez Canal, with over 350 vessels waiting on either side of it.
