Each year, roughly 1 billion tons of cargo transits the Suez Canal.
It's a key choke point for goods moving between the West and the East.
And right now, it is blocked by a 20,000 TEU container ship called EVER GIVEN.
It's moments like this that remind all of us why we need real time visibility to our cargo.
I'll provide links in the comments below, so that anyone who is interested can watch the progress.
Hopefully, the vessel will be freed quickly and there will be no injuries or damage.
But depending on how long it takes, the traffic jam it is causing could have ripple effects in global supply chains.
