Wednesday’s traffic included 18 container ships, 18 large oil tankers, 26 bulk carriers, 10 liquefied gas carriers (dedicated to transport gas), and 15 of other kinds, Suez Canal Authority (SCA) Chairman Osama Rabie said in a communique.

According to the text, this canal is ready to face the several changes in the world commercial traffic.

A week ago, the SCA revealed that the revenues from Egypt’s Suez Canal in the first eight months of 2021 rose by 11.6 percent year-on-year to 4.1 billion dollars.

From January to August, 13,317 vessels crossed the canal, an increase of 6.5 percent.

Built between 1859 and 1869, the 163-kilometer long Suez Canal is a man-made sea-level waterway, connecting the Mediterranean Sea to the Red Sea.
