Ship Stuck in Suez Canal May Further Contribute to Bike Parts Shortage

Mar 25, 2021
by Alicia Leggett  
The Ever Given is owned by the shipping company Evergreen Marine.

A giant cargo ship the length of four football fields, the Ever Given, is blocking the Suez Canal for a third day, disrupting the flow of what is estimated to be more than $9 billion USD in goods each day.

12% of all global maritime trade passes through the Suez Canal, a narrow man-made passageway from the Mediterranean to the Red Sea and the shortest sea route from Asia to Europe. Some experts say that freeing the ship could take days or even weeks, creating ripple effects throughout essentially all global industries.

The pandemic and resulting bike shortage have exposed points in the bike supply chain that were susceptible to bottlenecks, and we can expect this disruption to further exacerbate the shortages. We can add this to the long list of reasons bikes and parts are on backorder: unprecedented demand due to COVID, increased tariffs and new hurdles due to Brexit, and much more.

While we didn’t need a gaffe of this magnitude to remind us we can’t get bike parts, this situation highlights yet another vulnerability in the bike supply chain.

The efforts to free the Ever Given are underway.

So far, a small fleet of tugboats, dredgers, and other heavy equipment has worked unsuccessfully to free the ship, which was reportedly blown off course by strong winds. There has been no progress. The resulting traffic jam now includes about 150 ships, at least eight of which are carrying live animals. The Ever Given weighs about 200,000 metric tons -- equivalent to more than 14 million mountain bikes, to put it in familiar terms (using 30 lbs / 14 kg as a rough estimated bike weight). A similar recovery effort near a German port in 2016 took nearly a week and 12 tugboats to unf*ck the boat.

And if a major shipping catastrophe in the midst of a global pandemic and widespread economic uncertainty wasn’t enough, the story gets even stranger. In light of the ship’s NSFW tracklog prior to becoming the world’s largest beached whale, should we have seen this coming?

We have reached out to several major European brands to see if and how this may affect the bike industry. This story will be updated as more information becomes available.

The ship carries roughly 20,000 containers.

 each boat navigating the Suez has to have a 'pilot', an Egyptian Suez expert who helps guide the captain through the canal (it's a fairly standard idea for complex waterways). it'll be interesting to see how their account plays out. The captain of this ship will have done this lots of times before (the size of this thing means it isn't their first rodeo).

sometimes things go wrong though, and with the Suez and bigger and bigger boats it is more of an oh wow isn't it amazing how infrequently boats crash into the side.

 They're also optimized to run their engines on the worst of the worst fuel oil to minimize costs. Large ships run on what is known as 'bunker fuel', which is the dregs of crude oil left over once everything else useful has been distilled out of it. This stuff is literally only one step above bitumen. It's such sludge that they need to pre-heat it to make it liquid enough to pump into the engines, and so filthy (loaded with sulfur etc) that most ports ban the burning of it - the ships run on more regular diesel near land, then switch to the cheaper trash once they're """outside the environment""".

 I can tell you as someone who has had parts on that ship and runs a bike company...

Yes it will effect parts availablity and cost. We're emailing lots of customers today to warn them that this will impact delivery of some bikes. Not sure at this point by how much, but there's two main issues;

1. This is an evergreen vessel, the main carrier from Taiwan to the world. Which means even if your parts/bike aren't on that ship, it will put their schedules out of whack for a bit. With global capacity stretched to the max, there's in unlikely to be much slack available to evergreen.

2. They're probably going to have to unload it, at least partially. Doing that will mean significant time delays in reopening the canal. In the mean time ships might be able to route round the Cape of good hope, but I'm not sure if the mega container ships like these like the rough seas down there. Even if they can make the passage it will weeks to the transit most likely. In which case again not only does parts take longer, but now capacity is reduced too, so shipping gets more expensive AND slower.

So in essence it sucks. If you're in the EU and expecting an April delivery for a part from Taiwan, don't hold your breath.
  • 1 0
 If the detour round the cape is planned in it takes approximately 12 days longer. Not massive but that does require planning that into the trip from the start. Sailing to Egypt first, then turning round and going round the cape will add a lot more time. The ships stuck right now are going to be significantly more delayed even if they turn them around today.
  • 2 0
 @Patrick9-32: You have to add onto that the port delays, as the ships will arrive at the wrong times and we're already seeing big delays in ports for on time arrivals. I would think this adds 2 weeks min for Rotterdam (normal first port of call for those not following the world of container shipping), and then onwards the delays would only increase for subsequent stops. Not great.
  • 1 0
 @benpinnick: Absolutely. A lot of people don't understand the compounding effects of these type of delays in a system that is currently stretched beyond capacity. The Evergiven might be there for a week but it could add months to transit times for some goods while not affecting others at all.
  • 1 0
 @Patrick9-32: Yup. 12 days might not sound alot but then when you project that forward in terms of loss of capacity in an already stretched network, you could find you cant catch the first two boats from Taiwan (2 weeks gone) and then when you do it takes 2 weeks longer... So thats a month...

 It's not impossible that it has been orchestrated to slow global trade. I heard an economist recently discuss the fact that in her view, the lockdowns are simply to slow the velocity of money so they can keep hiding the underlying structural issues we're having since 1) Bretton Woods where the whole world relied on the US$ and 2) Nixon taking the US off the gold standard. The central bank digital currencies aren't ready to go yet, so they need to find a way to buy a bit of time until they are. #HODL #Bitcoin

 @sfarnum: while the rest of the post is bs conspiracy junk, velocity of money is indeed a real metric of macro financials measured by the US fed and held in esteem by economists everywhere. An increase in velocity of money (how fast money is spent) can signal inflation.

Basically the amount of money available * velocity of spending = inflation. Currently we are not experiencing massive inflation, even with a massive increase in money supply because velocity is low and has been dropping. If velocity were to rise right now, then inflation would too.
