Ever Given to arrive in Rotterdam day later than expected

The containership Ever Given, which blocked the Suez Canal in March, is expected to arrive at the Port of Rotterdam on 29 July 2021, one day later than it was initially planned.

According to the port, the ship is scheduled to arrive at the ECT Delta terminal on the south side.

The ship is expected to stay there until early August to unload and load containers. 

Once the loading process is finished, it will continue its voyage to Felixstowe, England. 

According to Marine Traffic data, the ship is currently sailing through the English Channel.
