Your amazon package is in route.....the Suez Canal is open again!


The giant container ship that blocked traffic in the Suez Canal for the last week resumed its journey on Monday after being successfully refloated.

The 1,400-foot long cargo ship jammed diagonally across a southern section of the Suez Canal, including dozens of container ships and bulk carriers, unable to use the route as of Monday morning.

The stranded Panama-flagged and Japanese-owned ship had halted all traffic across the canal. Experts feared it could take weeks to free it and clear the blockage of a route that accounts for about 12 percent of global trade.
