The colossal container ship that’s been wedged across the Suez Canal for almost a week was “successfully re-floated” as of Monday morning.
Tugboats are pulling the vessel toward the Great Bitter Lake, in the middle of the waterway, where it will undergo inspections.
The Suez Canal is a major global shipment chain, with roughly 10% of world trade flowing through the canal.
As of yesterday, more than 320 ships were waiting to travel through the Suez Canal, delaying global trade flows.
There is expected to be extensive delays in trade flows as a result of the blockage.
