Expanded Panama Canal will affect transport by land

Tuesday, June 30, 2015


When the expanded Panama Canal is operational, produce shippers who have traditionally relied on West Coast ports and rail service could benefit from a more segmented approach, according to a study by C.H. Robinson.

The study shows up to 10% of container traffic from East Asia to the U.S. could likely shift from US West Coast ports to East Coast ports by 2020.
