Grounded container ship causes delays for liner majors in Suez Canal

Container majors such as ONE, Maersk, MSC and CMA CGM all have vessels currently located in the gridlocked Suez Canal. The incident has "started to have some impact," ONE tells ShippingWatch, while Maersk has four ships "stuck" in the canal. Analyst Lars Jensen says that carriers should consider sailing south of Africa.

It has already caused major disruptions for the world's container majors that a grounded Evergreen container ship currently blocks ships from passing through the busy Suez Canal, which functions as a gateway between Asia and Europe.

Data from Vessels Value show that both CMA CGM, Maersk, MSC, Yang Ming and ONE have vessels located in the canal.
