Suez Canal accident: What is the approach of ShipsGo to the Suez Canal accident?

In the previous days, an accident that could seriously damage the world economy occurred in the Suez Canal, one of the busiest points of the world's maritime traffic. As known about the Ever Given vessel, it has a container carrying capacity of 20 thousand tons and a self-weight of 220 tons. It ran aground due to the sandstorm and prevented all vessel crossings panicked the whole world trade. 

An average of 70 vessels has been provided passage per day. In comparison, approximately 12 percent (about 19 thousand vessels per year) of the world trade passes here on the Suez Canal, which acts as a bridge and connects the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea. 

 

What will this accident cost in the world?

It is known that the accident that occurred in the Suez Canal, which carries such importance to world trade, has prevented the passage of over 300 ships, 30 of which are petroleum tankers. These disruptions in the petroleum trade caused partial increases in petroleum prices in the world. Reputed maritime magazine Lloyd's List published that the goods worth $ 9 billion were spoiled due to the Suez Canal accident. According to some reports, it is stated that world trade suffers approximately 10 billion dollars in losses each day.

What are the approaches of ShipsGo to the Suez Canal accident?

As a result of this unfortunate accident, ShipsGo has been diligently investigating and gathering information about the accident from the very first minutes. In addition to closely monitoring the event by all teams in ShipsGo, our operations team, with more than 20 members, aimed to check and inform our customers about the vessels and containers affected in the accident. The operations team has checked the container and vessel status many times manually and robot technology developed by the ShipsGo IT team.

As a result of the operations and IT teams' scans: ShipsGo users' loadings were being transported in the 115 vessels among over 300 vessels as 5410 containers awaiting the opening of the Suez Canal. According to the data collected, there are 2595 shipments and approximately 8000 TEUs remaining in the Suez Canal.

163 ShipsGo users were reached and informed about the status of the total 5410 containers. They have been sent a list of their containers that remain in the vessels waiting in the Suez Canal. In this way, they were able to provide their customers with the necessary information at the right time.

Even the smallest disruptions occurring in such important key points can deeply affect the world economy. Business functions may be interrupted not only on a company basis but also on an individual basis. For the companies and individuals in the import and export sector, the transparency and accessibility of the goods during the vessel voyage mean everything, especially in such a game-changing case. So, it carries prime importance for us that ShipsGo users know every current situation about the accident. To ensure this, all of our teams are closely monitoring the situation since day one. 


 

Customer Reaction 

Reaching 163 customers at the right time allowed us to receive good feedbacks from them. Our teams’ detailed status emails in such a sensitive situation paved the way for our customers to develop correct business moves and create fast solutions for their operations.
