Panama Canal: Main Milestones of 2018
The Panama Canal’s success in 2018 was marked by milestones we achieved together. We closed fiscal year 2018 with a record, welcoming 442.1 million Panama Canal tons (PC/UMS), the highest annual cargo tonnage in our 104-year history. In between, we welcomed massive new vessels and strengthened our international maritime service with the increase of Neopanamax reservations.
We will continue to bring value to the maritime industry by ensuring that the Panama Canal remains a reliable, efficient and valuable route for our customers. We welcome 2019 with new and exciting challenges, reinforcing our commitment to offer a world-class service.
