Suez Canal traffic moving again, livestock carriers given priority

Marine traffic is moving once again through the Suez Canal, and the attention is now turning to the investigation of how a giant cargo ship got stuck.

That ship has been moved to a mooring point so the hull can be inspected. As soon as it cleared the Suez Canal, shipping traffic resumed and livestock carriers were given priority since feedstock supplies are limited on board.

Analysts say it could take several days to clear the backlog and the canal authority is increasing the maximum daily traffic to get back to normal quicker.

The domino effects at destination ports are still yet to been seen.
