A container ship from the same shipping company is hit again: the "Ever Forward" ran aground on the east coast of the USA.

As can be seen from "Vesselfinder", the huge container ship is stranded on the way from Baltimore to Norfolk.

It ran aground in the Chesapeake Bay, the Bloomberg news agency reported.

About a year ago, the container ship "Ever Given" got wedged in the Suez Canal, causing a traffic jam and global delivery problems for days.

The American Coast Guard is now trying to free the ship, it said.

The cause of how the freighter ran aground is still unclear.

On the other hand, one thing is clear: the ship needs water at least 13 meters deep.

At the point where it is now, however, the water depth is only around 7.5 meters.

According to media reports, no one is injured and the ship is undamaged.

A crucial difference to its sister ship, the "Ever Given", is the location: The "Ever Forward" does not block any trade routes.

The Suez Canal is a bottleneck in the world economy, and there is significantly more room to avoid it on the North American coast.

The "Ever Forward" is 334 meters long and belongs to the Taiwanese shipping company Evergreen Marine Corp.

The same company also owns "Ever Given", which made headlines last year.
