The Government of Panama has announced a public bid for the construction of a large scale port on the Pacific side of the Panama Canal. This will be the third port terminal on this side of the Canal, which will be developed in a 112 hectares area. On the Pacific side, will compete with Panama Ports Company, a Hutchinson Port Holdings subsidiary, located in Balboa, and with PSA Panama International Terminal, recently built on Rodman. Additionally, will be next to the cargo train operated by Panama Canal Railway Company. This terminal is part of the Panamanian State Plan to develop cargo transport infrastructures, adding up competitiveness to these terminals (4 in the Atlantic, and 3 in the Pacific), to the maritime services and the total cargo capacity.
