Panama Canal could influence future of port of Corpus Christi in United States

Monday, May 9, 2011

The Panama Canal expansion could change business at the Port of Corpus Christi for better or worse, depending on how Corpus Christi prepares.

The game-changing project nearly 1,600 miles away will widen and deepen the canal, opening up what is now a narrow and congested pathway.

The expansion has the potential to alter world trade patterns substantially. Ships too large to navigate the canal now rely on West Coast ports.
