  • The bottleneck created when the Ever Given container ship got stuck in the Suez Canal stranded shipments from auto parts and dairy products to beer and luxury goods on their way to markets in Europe, the U.S. and Asia.
  • Vessels backed up at either end of the Suez during the blockage carried the equivalent of at least 66,480 containers of cargo delayed by the crisis.
  • As of April 1, delayed cargo tracked by E2open included the equivalents of 1,863 20-foot containers of department-store merchandise en route to the U.S. from China and 1,519 containers of logs and lumber products headed from Belgium to China.
