Suape to start receiving New Panamax vessels

The Port of Suape, in Pernambuco, will start receiving New Panamax container vessels, the largest that can currently cross the Panama Canal. The New Panamax ships have the largest dimension available in Latin America – 366 meters long, 52 meters wide and capacity for about 14,000 TEUs (measure equivalent to a 20-foot container). State-owned and the largest port in the Northeast of Brazil in container transport, Suape multiplied its net profit by five in 2020, compared to 2019, to $10 million.
