With the inauguration of the Panama Canal expansion project set for late June, the Supply Chain and Logistics Trade journals have begun to review the consequences of the Canal’s expanded capacity. One consulting group estimates that around 10% of Asian container traffic will be rerouted from the West Coast to Eastern and Gulf ports. In anticipation of this increase in traffic, East Coast ports have already begun to expand their capacity. This shift will likely also hit the eastward traffic of freight from the West Coast by rail and truck. The increase in traffic at East Coast ports will only exacerbate the delays and chassis shortages already established there. We envision an increase both in delays off the pier and in trucking rates.
