Co-Evolutionary Approach for Interoceanic Shipping

More than 80% of international trade is carried out through the sea, hence maritime trade being, by far, the most widely used mode of transport. One important actor in this activity is the Panama Canal, where approximately 5% of all world cargo passes every year. Accordingly, because of their strategic situation (i.e. bridging Pacific and Atlantic oceans), other Central American countries have launched interoceanic projects that can help to move goods from one ocean to another. E.g. Honduras has ports in both oceans (Puerto Cortés and San Lorenzo, in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans, respectively), which are connected through a highway called Honduras Dry Channel. The transit time between both ports is approximately 7 hours, faster compared to the transit time in the Panama Canal, which for the year 2015 was 12.26 hours (and with a total average time of 30.58 hours including waiting in water). This paper describes the conception of an evolutionary-collaborative approach for interoceanic maritime transport in Central America be optimized.
