6 days and $60 billion later, Suez Canal is open for business again

Mar 30, 2021 06:41 IST | By Editorji News Desk

After six days of complete halt the world's busiest waterway the Suez Canal is finally unblocked.

The 1300 foot ship was dislodged after more than 10 tugboats arrived on the scene, along with specialized dredging equipment and expert salvage teams all working together to free the 220,000-ton vessel.

But the economic backlog is far from over; experts say it could take over 60 days before traffic resumes back to normal on the waterway that moves close to $10 billion worth of goods daily.
