The stranded container ship blocking the Suez Canal was re-floated on March 29 and is currently being secured, Inch Cape Shipping Services said.

The ship was successfully refloated at 4.30 am local time and was being secured at the moment, Inchcape, a global provider of marine services said on Twitter.

The same was confirmed by maritime traffic tracking sites Vesselfinder and myshiptracking. The stern of the boat has moved away from the canal's western bank, according to both sites.

As we reported earlier, the 400-metre long Ever Given became jammed diagonally across a southern section of the canal in high winds early on Tuesday, halting shipping traffic on the shortest shipping route between Europe and Asia.

At least 369 vessels were waiting to transit the canal, including dozens of container ships, bulk carriers, oil tankers and liquefied natural gas (LNG) or liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) vessels.

Egypt's Leth Agencies tweeted the ship had been partially refloated, pending official confirmation from the Suez Canal Authority.
