The sea freight industry has come into the spotlight in recent weeks due to the issues in the Suez Canal. As the recent problems demonstrate, one issue like this can affect an entire chain of supplies.
One of the world’s most heavily used shipping lanes, the Suez Canal has been in operation since the Victorian era. It provided sea freight solutions for many businesses since it provides the shortest maritime route from Europe to Asia.
It’s estimated the huge container ship, the ‘Ever Given’ could take weeks to clear, after it ran into trouble during a sandstorm. Since the ship is almost the size of the Empire State Building, it’s proving difficult to manoeuvre.
