Jump to: navigation, search

A Panamax port is a deepwater port that can accommodate a fully laden Panamax ship. With the approval of the Panama Canal expansion proposal in October 2006, this list will need to be significantly revised when the expansion is completed. Other lists are required for even bigger Valemax and Chinamax ships.[1]
