Slow debut of new services through Panama Canal

Monday, February 8, 2016

The Panama Canal Authority is shooting to open its third set of larger locks that can handle post-Panamax ships in May, but it doesn’t expect the larger locks to attract new services for several months.

Panama Canal Administrator Jorge Quijano said the canal already has regained some of the services it lost to the Suez Canal over the last three years.
