The industrial sector in Germany expressed its fear that navigation in the Suez Canal would be disrupted due to the delinquency of the “Ever Geffen” ship in the shortage of supplies needed for the sector.
“The already stalled maritime supply chains between Asia and Europe threaten to come to a complete stop,” said Deputy Executive Director of the Federation of German Industries, Holger Loch, on Friday.
“It takes an extra week to divert ships around Africa, which is very costly,” Lelouch said. “Even a one-week delay is a problem, especially for branches of industry with programmed production, such as the auto industry.”
It should be noted that in a programmed production system the manufacturing components arrive at the factory at the time they will be processed.
The container ship “Ever Geffen”, whose length is 400 meters, has obstructed the flow of ships traffic in the Suez Canal, one of the most important waterways in the world, since last Tuesday.
“Once the disruption is ended, congestion will reach European ports,” Loch said, adding that even before the accident there was a slowdown in container shipping traffic from China to Europe.
