The New Panama Canal: Impacts and Opportunities in the USA
Author : Shaw, Denton-Brawn
The new Panama Canal locks are being built to accommodate ships with a total fresh water (TFW) draft of 50 feet, a beam of 160 feet and a length of 1,200 feet. This compares with the current canal limits of about 41 feet draft, 110 feet beam and 1000 feet length. Once opened in 2015, the new canal is expected to have a significant impact on US ports with the primary impact expected to be substantially increased traffic at the US East and Gulf Coast ports and a decrease on the US West Coast ports.
