Suez canal / Cape route around Africa - delay difference in days
How much longer does it take for a cargo ship traveling from China or India to European Rotterdam harbour, when it is sailing around South Africa's Cape of Good Hope instead of going through Suez canal ? What is the time difference between these routes in days ?
|Traveling through the Suez canal instead of going around South Africa's Cape of Good Hope, reduces the distance by approx. 9 000 km / 5 500 miles. The travel time depends on the type of vessel. Large container cargo ships are often able to reach the speed of 15 - 25 knots. The ships have different fuel tank capacity and fuel consumption, so they need to make a various number of stops for refuelling. Also the weather conditions have impact on travel speed.|
In general, going through the Suez canal instead of traveling around South Africa, reduces the total travel time in case of many ships by 10 - 15 days, but it can be even more.
