Study Projects Panama Canal Project Won’t Reduce Carbon

The peer-reviewed Study examines the environmental opportunities presented by the expansion of the Panama Canal.

The Study, Panama Canal Expansion: Emission Changes from Possible U.S. West Coast Modal Shift, has evaluated whether a modal shift of east coast-bound cargo onto larger ships through an expanded canal offers net emission reductions compared with the land-freight truck/rail network via the west coast.

The conclusion stated: “Green-freight policy measures must consider multimodal network solutions to maximize emission benefits.”
