The 20,000 TEU container ship Ever Given, which blocked the Suez Canal in March, arrived at the Port of Felixstowe today at around 3pm (local time).
The vessel has made its expected arrival after it was originally scheduled to arrive in Suffolk in early April.
Shipwatchers have been gathering along the Felixstowe coast, posting updates on the vessel’s berthing.
The Ever Given is scheduled to unload at Trinity Terminal, one of the largest container handling facilities in the UK.
Last week, the vessel visited the ECT Delta terminal and discharged all containers bound for Rotterdam and Hamburg. The Hamburg-bound containers were loaded onto the Ever Utile to continue their journey to Hamburg, according to the port authority.
Damage to the hull is scheduled to be examined in Dunkirk.
The Panamanian-flagged vessel was stranded on March 23, blocking the waterway for days and causing a huge bottleneck in world trade.
