Marketing the Canal Expansion

The Panamanian Canal Authority has agreed with U.S. ports to cooperate in advertising and marketing the new possibilities offered from 2014 onwards.

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

Under the framework of a permanent strategy, the Panamanian Canal Authority (ACP) has been forming strategic alliances with Eastern and Southern ports in the U.S., such as the ports Everglades, Florida, New Orleans, Louisiana, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Corpus Christi and Freeport in Texas. More deals are expected to be announced in the coming months.

The ACP and U.S. ports will cooperate on advertising and marketing, research and exchange of data, technical and personnel training.

The partnership also includes the "All-Water Route" from Asia to the U.S. East Coast through the Panama Canal.

The agreements are part of the ACP’s efforts to promote the Canal’s $ 5.25 billion expansion project, which is expected to be completed in 2014.

The vice president of market research and analysis at the ACP, Rodolfo Sabonge, said:"As we approach the culmination of our Canal expansion project - doubling its capacity and allowing the passage of vessels with greater lengths and widths – it is fundamental that best practices and information are shared and jointly marketed when the case warrants.
