The Chang Chi is finally out of trouble! The Suez Canal is open

The Suez Canal shipping service provider “Laissez Faire” said rescuers finally got the Evergreen Marine container ship Chang Chi out of trouble. Reuters reported that the Suez Canal is open.

Laissez Faire said that the Chang Chi was refloated on the 29th. With the favorable conditions of the highest water level of the full tide, the tugboat fleet successfully towed the bow of the Chang Chi out of the mud and sand. The Jangchil has been aground since the 23rd.

The tugboat is towing the Jangchil to the saltwater lake in the middle section of the canal, the Great Bitter Lake, for investigation.
