IMO2020, impacting all aspects of shipping, has the po- tential to bring about a backslide in the East Coast’s traf? c gains. Joshua Hurwitz, Senior Consultant at port designer ? rm Moffaft & Nichol has made the case that in- creased fuel costs due to IMO2020 could prompt 1.2 mil- lion TEUs inbound to the U.S. to swing back to West Coast discharge, with shorter transit times from Asian ports.

The inaugural LNG transit of the new and improved Pan- ama Canal came courtesy of the Maran Gas Apollonia in July 2016.
