Thus ending the backlog

Huh, the Suez backlog is cleared. That’s good, because reports were saying it could take weeks.

The last ships stranded by the grounding of a giant container vessel in the Suez canal passed through the waterway on Saturday, according to the Suez Canal Authority (SCA).

Osama Rabie, the chairman of the SCA, said 85 ships were expected to pass through the canal from both sides on Saturday. They included the last 61 of the 422 ships that were queuing when the container vessel was dislodged, thus ending the backlog of shipping that built up during the crisis.

Good job. The port city of Seattle sends a fist-bump.
