With the welcome news this week that the Ever Green container ship has made it successfully through the Suez Canal after being stuck for over a week, with it brings a whole new set of challenges facing global shipping.

The fallout from the week-long blockage is likely to be felt for months as delays and price hikes are expected in an already COVID-strained industry.
