The Ever Given was trapped in the Suez Canal for a week.

Ever Given Ever Ywhere lets users put a scale picture of the ship at any point in the world in order to put into perspective the true size of this massive container ship.

The Ever Given hit the headlines recently after it became wedged in the Suez Canal, a major trade route.

The huge ship has since been freed, and the backlog of traffic left by the blockage is expected to take four or five days to clear.
