Google dedicated a small design to its website to celebrate the freeing of the Ever Given container ship previously stuck in the Suez Canal on Tuesday.
According to the search engine’s main webpage, visitors only need to type in “suez canal” or “ever given” and they will see little ships sailing from right to left on the page.
The Suez Canal will slowly resume shipping, according to reports, and there are currently about 422 cargo ships which have passed through.
Officials also said that other than vessels carrying livestock, ships will be allowed passage on a “first come first serve” basis.
It is currently expected to take up to 6 days to fully unblock the canal.
According to foreign media reports, the Ever Given, after re-floating and righting itself, has arrived at the middle of the canal at the Great Bitter Lake with the help of several tugboats and will undergo a detailed inspection to decide whether to continue its scheduled voyage.
The Suez Canal’s two-way channel has resumed full navigation at around 7 p.m. local time on Monday (1 a.m. Taiwan time on the March 30) and is expected to allow passage to 100 ships per day.
Although the jamming crisis has been lifted, it will take a few more days to digest the vessels blocking both ends of the canal, and some maritime operators have warned that the stranding of the Ever Given ship has caused a chain reaction.
Stranded cargo may therefore, take a month to be fully processed, and the issue of compensation for subsequent losses is still outstanding.
As of about 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday (Taiwan time), the “Vesselfinder” page, which shares real-time vessel information, showed that both ends of the Suez Canal were still jammed with hundreds of vessels waiting in line to pass.
