Cargo Ships in the Panama Canal

Cargo Ships waiting for their Panama Canal Transit

The canal is presently handling more vessel traffic than had ever been envisioned by its builders. In 1934 it was estimated that the maximum capacity of the canal would be around 80 million tons per year; canal traffic in 2009 consisted of 299.1 million tons of shipping.
