Port of Miami renews Panama Canal Authority pact to share marketing, information, data, training and technology

Wednesday, November 2, 2011

Miami Seaport director Bill Johnson celebrated its longstanding partnership with the Panama Canal Authority.

The memorandum of understanding — calling for the Port of Miami and Panama Canal Authority to share marketing activities, information, data, training and technology — is expected to have increased meaning as both the port and the canal undergo major improvements.

The dredging to deepen the port's cargo shipping channel is supposed to be a key to raising sea cargo shipments through Miami to unprecedented levels after the Panama Canal is widened and deepened in 2014.
