    Shipping in the Red Sea

    The Red Sea is a gulf of the Indian Ocean located between the Arabian Peninsula and northeastern Africa. It connects to the Indian Ocean through the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait to the south, and the Suez Canal in the north links it to the Mediterranean Sea. The Red Sea serves as one of the most important trade routes in the world, with approximately 10% of global trade and 30% of container shipping passing through the strategic waters. Covering an area of 438,000 square kilometers, the Red Sea is 2,250 kilometers long, making it the fifteenth-largest sea in the world.
