Principais Canais Hidroviários do Mundo (Canal do Panama) - Aula 02


Navigable canals connect seas, lakes, and rivers and are vital because they offer shorter transport routes and also help regulate intra-country water transport and facilitate the daily movement of various vessels. Around the world, there are hundreds of transport channels of varying lengths, widths, and depths to facilitate the daily movement of various vessels.

The Panama Canal serves as a maritime shortcut that saves time and costs in transporting all kinds of goods. The 80-kilometer waterway communicates the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans in one of the narrowest points of the American Continent. Since its opening in 1914, more than one million ships from all over the world have transited the Canal. The historic millionth mark was reached on September 4, 2010 with the transit of the bulk carrier Fortune Plum.
