Suez Canal Container Ship Freed?
As reported in the blog for London business directory, the stuck container ship in the Suez Canal has finally been freed..or has it?
Conflicting reports are emerging. One is that the Container ship has now been freed, allowing global trade, totalling around 12% of the total amount, to continue it's journey. However, a conflicting report says that whilst the container ship will imminently be freed, it has, at this point, only had it's direction changed by 80%, allowing it to move once refloated.
The latest news follow on reports, such as this one in a local UK business directory, that they container ship was receiving an attempt at movement over the weekend. It was reported that 14 tugs were due to arrive on Saturday with a view to freeing the stricken container ship on Sunday.
