Panama Canal welcomes second 14,000 TEU container ship in one week
For the second time in one week, the Panama Canal welcomed a container vessel with a Total TEU Allowance (TTA) of 14,863, reaffirming the value of the expanded waterway.
CMA CGM J Adams matched the capacity of the CMA CGM Theodore Roosevelt, which established a new record as the largest capacity container vessel on August 22 with the same mark of 14,863 TTA.
Like the CMA CGM Theodore Roosevelt, CMA CGM J Adams is deployed on the new OCEAN Alliance's weekly South Atlantic Express (SAX) service, which connects Asia and U.S. East Coast ports via the Panama Canal.
"Both transits over a period of seven days are further evidence of the impact of the Expanded Panama Canal to world maritime trade," said Panama Canal Administrator Jorge L. Quijano.
