The opening ceremony

06.08.2015

Today Egypt is celebrating their new canal.

For the opening ceremony which will take place on the banks of the Suez Canal today, only three container vessels each direction have been allowed to transit. We would expect the traffic situation be back to normal within the next couple of days however, it is obviously important to consider that today’s very small convoy will create quite a backlog both in Suez and Port Said.

The six vessels are:
S/B containers vessels details:
- MSC Capella
- CMA CGM Laperoouse
- Hanjin Gold


N/B containers vessels details:
- MSC Chicago
- CMS CGM Titan
- Thalassa Avra
