Panama confirms new toll for big ships

From Port Technology:

Panama’s Cabinet Council has set a launch date for the new Panama Canal tolls structure for large ships completing East-West backhauls through the new locks.

Panama Canal Authority’s (ACP) latest modifications to the toll structures aim to send container lines the message that there are advantages in routing megaships through the locks on return voyages.

A new modified toll structure, revealed on an ACP website, is scheduled to go into effect in the coming months, on October 1, 2017.
