    An ultra-large containership is aground and blocking ship traffic in the Suez Canal.

    AIS data shows the MV Ever Given is stuck sideways within the canal, preventing ships from passing in either direction. Several tugs have been on scene for several hours working to dislodge the ship.

    Shipping agent GAC reports that the grounding occurred at 7:40 a.m. local time on Tuesday (March 23) at kilometer 151 after the vessel suffered a black out while transiting.

    “The 199,489 GT ship was fifth in the northbound convoy.
