"CAIRO -- A super tanker that blocked the Suez Canal..."

MV Ever Given is not a super tanker.

On the return journey, the container ship is empty of all containers. Trade is one way.

The container trade is mostly one way, east to west. Empty containers west to east.

The Even Given is heading to QINGDAO in China.

Don’t tankers carry liquids and compressed gasses etc and not containers?

Larger sister ships to Every Given are under construction now for Evergreen. What could possibly go wrong?

Eventually the Ever Given will be going to China, but according to Lloyd’s List, the ship is headed for Singapore for repairs to it’s hull, hence it’s not carrying any (empty or not empty) containers.

Well, if empty, it was riding light and had no problem with the draft in the canal. I wonder if they replaced the captain?
