Friday, March 10, 2017


The Panama Canal set yet another daily tonnage record in February 2017 with a total of 1,180 vessel transits totaling 1.18 million Panama Canal tons (PC/UMS).

The previous record was established the month prior in January 2017 when the Canal recorded a daily tonnage average of 1.16 PC/UMS. The daily tonnage average accounts for vessels transiting through both the original and expanded locks.
