During the siege of the Suez Canal by the giant container ship Evergiven, concerns arose about the welfare of livestock aboard the dozens of ships. However, shipping companies have assured that there will be enough food and water for the animals on board.
The massive traffic jams of cargo ships are now starting to dissolve very slowly. To the south you can see a large series of boats each sailing over the Red Sea near the city of Suez. Northbound traffic to Europe will likely resume soon. It is likely that several of these ships will arrive in Rotterdam around the same time.
More than 400 sea ships are waiting to pass in a convoy.

According to local authorities, it will take approximately four days to resolve all traffic jams. It is expected that 113 of the 450 ships waiting to have crossed Tuesday morning.
The main culprit, Ever Geffen, is now in a large lake that the Suez Canal also runs through.
