We're Gonna Need a Bigger Canal

Jamie Thingelstad - Container Ship Queue:

They normally pass 50 ships a day through the canal. With so many backed up, it will be a few days before things get back to normal.

The linked article includes some cool graphical imagery of the shipping impact of the Panama Suez Canal1 being blocked.

It goes to show how fragile our trade system is; and the economic value inherent in the canal.


  1. My thanks to Steve Snider for pointing out my dopey mistake of calling out the wrong canal. Geography, eh? [return]
