Successful processing of Suez Armada

[ May 12, 2021   //   ]

“The Suez Armada is as good as processed,” reports officials at the Port of Rotterdam. “We are proud of how well Rotterdam addressed this, but things remain very busy and challenging at the terminals.”
With this notification, the Suez consultation between various sector organizations was disbanded week. This consultative panel was established to support the terminals in processing the 64 container ships en route to Rotterdam that were delayed when the Suez Canal was blocked after the Ever Given ran aground on 23 March. 54 vessels have now been processed, three vessels were cancelled, two are currently being processed in Rotterdam, one is at anchor and four are en route. Among these four is the Ever Given, which has been seized by the Egyptian authorities in the canal’s Great Bitter Lake.
