The Panama Canal was opened in January of 1914. By December of 2010, the Panama Canal has had over 1,000,972 ship transits through it, delivering over 8,587,711,605 tons of goods worldwide.
Upon completion of the new third lock system, scheduled to be in operation by early 2015 much larger ships (12,600 TEU = 1,400 ft. length by 160 ft. width) will be able to pass through on their way to our PortMiami. These larger ships allow for the delivery of containers at greatly reduced rates due to the sheer scale of delivery capacity the new vessels have to divide the cost of transportation over.
