CAIRO -- The massive container ship Ever Given has been successfully refloated after being stranded in the Suez Canal for almost a week, Egypt's Suez Canal Authority (SCA) said on Monday.

"The vessel is en route to the port of Rotterdam," and expected to arrive there on March 31, the ship tracking website VesselFinder showed with a map tracking the Panama-flagged ship Ever Given.

The 224,000-ton container has been stuck and blocking the vital waterway since Tuesday last week, after it lost the ability to steer amid massive winds and a sandstorm.
