Changes in the passage of the Panama Canal

Posted August 24, 2023 at 17:08 pm

Since January, the Panama Canal has been making water savings, due to the shortage of water that was foreseen since the beginning of the year for the second and third quarters of the year due to the dry season that usually occurs in these periods and that usually generates significant droughts, which impact the amount of water available for use in the canal, By July, operations were adapted to guarantee a competitive flow of vessels. Among the various restrictions is the change in the number of vessels that may pass through the Canal daily, as well as restrictions on their weight, which has resulted in an increase in the number of vessels that must wait to cross the Canal; for non-reserved transits, the average waiting time is between 9 to 11 days.
