    Shoei Kisen, the Japanese owner of a containership stuck in the Suez Canal that is holding up potentially billions of dollars of traded goods, apologized on Thursday and added that it was working toward a resolution of the situation.

    It said getting the ship moving was “extremely difficult”, but that there were no injuries or oil spillage caused by it running aground.

    “We sincere apologize for causing a great deal of concern,” the company said in an English statement more than 24 hours after the grounding.

    It said there were 25 crew on board, all of them of Indian nationality. The ship was fully laden with consumer goods bound for European markets in 20,000 standard shipping containers.
