One of the largest container ships in the world is still blocking the Suez Canal, an event which can have significant global consequences. Even Swedish interested parties such as the Port of Gothenburg may also be affected by the situation. The running aground is a clear reminder of the vulnerability of global transport chains, and sheds light on a number of important insurance issues.
