Ship Carrying Huge Load Of Sex Toys Is Now Free After Ever Given Removed From Suez Canal

A ship that was carrying a huge amount of sex toys through the Suez Canal before getting jammed up behind the trapped container ship Ever Given is now free.

The ship, stuck in a massive log jam behind the 400m container ship that was trapped across one of the world's busiest shipping lanes for six days, is now free to deliver its saucy cargo to the European market as planned.

On board the vessel, there are 20 containers that are chock-full of 'dildos, vibrators, and male masturbators'.

EDC Retail, which owns one of the biggest online sex toy shops in the Netherlands and Belgium, told LADbible in a statement: "The vessels that carry our containers are freed now and on their way to Rotterdam. We expect some delays in the port of Rotterdam as well when all the vessels arrive at the same time to be unloaded and another delay regarding transport by truck from Rotterdam to our warehouse.

"Meanwhile in China the produced items are stocking up as well as there are no containers available, which will cause another delay to get new stock from China to Holland. We predict that the effect of 6 days of delay on the Suez Canal will carry on for several months to come. The entire chain of supply is disrupted and will cause a domino effect on every link within the chain."

Let's just hope that everyone who ordered them found something else to spend their time on while the blockage was in place in Egypt.

EDC Retail had previously complained that they badly needed a restock after selling 'a lot' of products over the Christmas and Valentine's Day period.

However, that was previously 'not possible' because of the blockade.

Their CEO, Evertine Magerman, told Dutch news channel RTV Noord: "There are more than 20 containers full of well-running items, such as vibrators, dildos and male masturbators.

"A lot of these products were sold for Christmas and Valentine's Day, for example.

"There is now an extra lot on the way to restore stocks. But that is not possible now.

"It is annoying that such a hitch will continue for a long time before the rhythm in the transport chain is restored."

Well, he and his customers can breathe a sigh of relief, because - thanks to the efforts of a Dutch salvage company and the Suez Canal Authority, the precious cargo can move on again.

That salvage company, Boskalis, released a statement heralding the efforts of their workers and those who helped to get the shipping lane active once again.

In a statement, CEO Peter Berdowski said: "Shortly following the grounding of the Ever Given we were requested through SMIT Salvage to provide assistance with the salvage operation.

"I am excited to announce that our team of experts, working in close collaboration with the Suez Canal Authority, successfully refloated the Ever Given on 29 March at 15:05 hrs local time, thereby making free passage through the Suez Canal possible again."

"I'm extremely proud of the outstanding job done by the team on site as well as the many SMIT Salvage and Boskalis colleagues back home to complete this challenging operation under the watchful eye of the world.

"The time pressure to complete this operation was evident and unprecedented and the result is a true display of our unique capabilities as a dredging and marine services provider."

That's good news for everyone, particularly those waiting on some 'discreet packaging' dropping onto their welcome mat.
