You may have seen it on social media, a container ship is blocking the way to the Suez Canal in Egypt. This crossing point is extremely important and can affect the import of PS5, Xbox Series, and graphics cards. FKZ returns to it on that first day of the day. This is a topic that is talked about a lot on social networks: a huge container ship is blocking the route of the Suez Canal. A gust of wind would have deflected the 220,000 ton Moloch. More than 10% of the world’s maritime trade crosses this border crossing between Asia and Europe. Maneuvers are in progress to remove the boat but at the moment the others cannot pass.
A shortage that is likely to continue
The solution, meanwhile, is to take the old roads and bypass Africa, but that means double the travel time. The import of technology and IT goods will also be affected. PS, Xbox Series, and RTX 3000 graphics cards that are already hard to find may be missing from shelves for some time.
