East Coast ports hope for increased traffic from Panama Canal expansion

Posted By Administration, Friday, January 22, 2016

The Panama Canal expansion slated to be open by the spring will allow massive new ships through the trade route and could shift the flow of goods from the West Coast to the East Coast. However, there are doubts the East Coast ports will benefit from the higher freight volumes the larger fleet will carry, as the West Coast route is well-established and faster by a few days to the interior of the country (The Globe and Mail).
