As an MGEPS student, I believe that the prompt above (title) would be an interesting topic to discuss and even debate, specially in Logistics class.
It’s been 5 days since the blockade occurred in the Suez Canal, one of the world’s important trading/shipping routes. The manager of the canal is faced with a challenge of how to move the Ever Given ship that has a capacity of 240,000 tons.
As illustrated on the image above, there are three proposals for moving the ship.
- Several tugs push and pull the boat to move
- A boat loaded with a suction dredge sucks sand and silt from the bottom
- Remove containers and empty fuel to reduce weight and float
What about you? What is your solution? Please feel free to write your proposals on the comment section.
