Abstract

The Panama Canal extension project is, arguably, the most important current transportation project in the world today. It will allow most Post-Panamax vessels to use the canal and is likely to change transportation flow patterns throughout North and South America, as well as port loads and transportation flows inland in the Americas. This paper gives a short update on the status of the project and its likely impacts.
