Ismailia. A huge cargo ship is stuck in Egypt’s Suez Canal since Friday. Due to this, ‘traffic jam’ has started all around. Meanwhile, Germany’s insurance company Allianz has estimated that the blockage could cause a loss of US $ 600–1000 million. According to the report, due to Corona, the delivery of goods is already disrupted and now this blockage has increased the difficulties of European countries. On the other hand, America is also affected by it. Delivery of goods is also taking double time here. 12% of the world’s business is done through this canal. Last year, around 19 thousand ships crossed it.

The ship carrying the flag of Panama was stuck in this canal on Tuesday, carrying goods between Asia and Europe. The Japanese company owned this ship got stuck causing traffic jam in the canal. Due to this, dozens of small ships got trapped in the Mediterranean and Red Seas. The Suez Canal Authority has employed several boats to take out this huge ship.

How a ship trapped?
The incident occurred when a gust of sand arose due to strong winds on the banks of the 120-mile-long canal. This waterway is narrow. The crew lost control of the ship due to strong winds and reached the sandy shore. Due to being about 400 meters long and weighing 2 thousand metric tons, the process of evacuating the ship has become more difficult.
