A truck carrying a shipping container with the word “Evergreen” on it has gone viral in China after it caused a major traffic jam similar to the huge ship currently stuck in the Suez Canal.
An image of the truck, which bore striking similarities to the now-infamous Ever Given ship, went viral on the Chinese social media site Weibo on Saturday - the original post can be found here.
Although it is unclear where and when the picture was taken, text on the image’s header indicates that the location was on the Changshen Expressway at about 9:55am on Saturday, according to the Singaporean website Mothership.
It’s becoming a habit.

By now, we’re sure you’re all familiar with the original ship - which managed to get stuck in the Suez Canal earlier this week, blocking one of the world’s busiest trade routes…
While the two vehicles carry the same logo, the incidents do not appear to be related as Evergreen - the trading company linked to the Ever Given ship - does not operate a trailer business in Mainland China, according to China Times.
