Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM), the ship manager in charge of the ultra-large container ship, the Ever Given, that blocked the Suez Canal for a week, hopes to avoid any negative fallout from the accident. Meanwhile, the company is still waiting for news about the release of the ship and its crew.

The investigation of the accident is still ongoing and negotiations are taking place between the ship's Japanese owner Shoei Kisen Kaisha, its insurers and the Suez Canal Authority (SCA). BSM is not directly involved in the negotiations and the German Schulte Group's CEO, Ian Beveridge does not expect that his company can be made responsible in relation to the incident.
