Significantly, the impact of this huge ship getting stuck was also affecting the Indian trade. The government had prepared an action plan to deal with this crisis. Indian cargo ships engaged in import-export from other countries were advised to leave the Cape of Good Hope to avoid the jamming of the Suez Canal.
Traffic jam situation was created due to ship getting stuck
Due to the dust storm, this cargo ship was stuck in the Suez Canal. This 1300 feet long cargo ship got stuck causing a situation of traffic jams in the Red Sea and the Mediterranean Sea. Around 150 ships were stranded in this traffic jam, including about 10 crude tankers loaded with 13 million barrels of crude oil. Due to this, the delivery of petroleum products in many countries was delayed. Crude oil prices had skyrocketed since the cargo got stuck.
There was a loss of 400 million dollars every hour
Explain that for the last five days, an attempt was being made to remove this giant ship. Many container ships had to travel by another route due to the implication of this ship. Every day 50 ships move in the Suez Canal. 12 percent of the world’s trade passes through the Suez Canal. Every hour the ship was stuck, causing a loss of business of about $ 400 million.
