The massive container ship in the Suez Canal could disrupt global supply chains for weeks to come, but at least we’ll have memes to float through.
Always given, a ship is almost twice as long as the canal is wide, ran aground on Tuesday due to poor visibility in strong winds and a dust storm. At 1,300 feet and 224,000 tons, it could “be weeks” before Ever Given is away. according to Peter Berdowski, CEO of Boskalis. Boskalis is a Dutch company trying to displace the ship.
