Held for over 3 months following Suez Canal blockage
'The Ever Given' is on the move again, after being held in the Suez Canal for over 3 months.
In March, the container ship ran into the bank of the key trading route in Egypt, blocking it for six days.
The ship was not granted release until its owners had signed a deal with canal authorities.
Full compensation details were not revealed, but Egypt had previously demanded $550 million.
