The Suez Canal, a waterway running between Asia and Europe, was built between 1859 and 1869. It had a throughput of about 60 ships a day and duration of one crossing lasted approx. 22 hours. Unfortunately, the channel wasn?t wide enough to let the ship traffic go in both directions at the same time and the ships had to enter into special bays to let the other ones through.
