PortMiami joins Neopanamax era with $1.3 billion

Tuesday, July 12, 2016

PortMiami officially joined the Neopanamax era when the MOL Majesty — a vessel too big to fit through the original Panama Canal — became the first ship to arrive at the port after transiting the newly expanded canal.

The arrival of the Majesty was as much a celebration of Miami’s $1.3 billion in port improvements to accommodate bigger ships as it was a culmination of Panama’s nine-year locks project.
