    A maritime advisory firm Sea-Intelligence said the disruptions to shipping from the Houthi rebel attacks in the Red Sea are already more damaging to the supply chain than the early COVID-19 pandemic.

    The vessel capacity drop is the second largest in recent years. The only single event with a bigger impact than the Red Sea crisis was “Ever Given,” the giant cargo ship that got stuck in the Suez Canal for six days during March 2021.
