World's biggest car carrier transits Panama Canal
The world’s biggest vehicle carrier vessel began its transit of the Panama Canal at Cocoli on Thursday.
The Hoegh Target, sailing under the Norwegian flag, was built in 2015 specifically to allow it to pass through the new expanded locks. The ship, which began its journey in Japan, has a width of 36.5 meters and can carry 8,500 vehicles, the Panama Canal Authority reported.
