The expansion of the Panama Canal will bring important changes to the logistics of the region, especially with respect to transshipments.
The president of the Latin American delegation of the American Asociation of Port Authorities (AAPA), Armando Duarte of Colombia, said, "The ports must evaluate and redefine their roles, adjusting competitively to the new situation."
The 17th Latin American Ports Congress was to open today in Panama.
The event is organized by the Maritime Authority of Panama, the Canal Authority of Panama, and the American Association of Port Authorities.
The main theme of the congress is: "How to prepare our ports in accordance with world maritime traffic trends."
The AAPA Harbors, Navigation And Environment Seminar is due to take place in Panama City, Panama, May 20-22nd, and will have a focus on environmental management, navigation and port sustainability.
Said the AAPA: "Since its opening 94 years ago, the Panama Canal has contributed significantly to increasing world trade. In preparation for a third set of locks that will double the capacity of the canal by 2014, the American Association of Port Authorities (AAPA) will host its biennial Harbors, Navigation and Environment (HN&E) seminar in Panama City, May 20-22nd."
Strategically located on the western Gulf of Mexico, Port Corpus Christi is the sixth largest port in the United States in total tonnage.
