Formal investigations on how the giant container Ever Given run aground in the Suez canal, turning off the main global waterway for almost a week, starting on Wednesday, a canal official told Reuters. Chairman of the Canal Canal Authority (SCA) Osama Rabie has suggested weather conditions, including strong winds and human mistakes, can play a role in the runway on March 23.

The investigation will include examining the ship’s seaworthiness and the captain’s actions to help determine the cause, captain Rabie’s advisor Sheasha told Reuters. The captain was committed to giving full adherence to the probe, which will begin on Wednesday, Sheesha said.


The six-day blockage throws the global supply chain into chaos after a 400-meter ship (430 yards) becomes jammed diagonally in the southern part of the canal, the shortest shipping route between Europe and Asia. According to their chair, this incident is expected to cause busy insurance claims, with Lloyd from London expecting “big losses”, maybe $ 100 million or more.

Japanese owners of the ship said they have not yet received legal claims or demands over the Suez Canal blockage. Meanwhile, the Investigators have boarded a ship in a lake that separates the two canal parts; on Tuesday, the source of the canal and the word shipping agent said.

SCA has scheduled accelerated delivery convoys to clear the convoys of more than 400 ships built at the end of the canal and throughout the trip after the massive ship container got stranded. He said that he hopes that the queue can be cleaned at the end of the week to return to normal. Due to the recent blockage, some of the commodities prices, including oil, dramatically rose.
