An Evergreen trailer truck, whose vessel previously blocked the Suez Canal, caused serious congestion on one of the highways in China.
According to the agency, footage appeared on the Web showing a huge traffic jam caused by a truck with Evergreen’s inscription blocking the road.
Like a giant sea container ship that ran aground in the southern Suez Canal, the truck also veered off course to the right and stopped on the road at a 45-degree angle, effectively blocking traffic.
The container ship Ever Given – owned by the Japanese company Shoei Kisen and operated by the Taiwanese Evergreen Marine Corporation was heading from China to Holland and ran aground at 151 kilometres of the Suez Canal.
Presumably, the crew lost control of control due to poor visibility caused by sandstorms and hurricane winds.
Several hundred ships are awaiting their turn at the entrances to the channel in the north and south, and a few more ships are blocked in the channel itself.
The Suez Canal, 163 kilometres long, connects the Mediterranean and Red Seas. It accounts for 10-12% of the world sea freight turnover.
