This paper presents the need to create a seaway to complement the Panama Canal, in their efforts to unite Asia with the East market in the United State (the largest consumer market in the world) and vice versa.
So it is suggested that one of the most viable alternative is to use Honduras as a com-plementary route, this nation has in Isla del Tigre the Amapala Port, the only deepwater port in the Fonseca Gulf, in the Caribbean coast Honduras has two port, Castilla which has the greatest depth of the two and Puerto Cortés the only deep-water port opera-tional in Central America and is the first port in Latin America to qualify to the security Port programs of the US government, the Container Security Initiative (CSI) and Mega Port Initiative.
The inclusion of the establishment of the project dating from the nineteenth century, the creation of an inter-oceanic train. This project became feasible since the company Maersk, launched his boat triple E, 400 mts boats, which are the largest in the world and few ports has the characterize to serve them; Honduras is building the Interoceanic train, which consist of four railroads that would unite Amapala by side with Castilla y Cortes, reducing time and costs to the shipping companies, which could range 15 to 10 US cents per pound (currently around 20 US cents).
These projects would be complemented by Special Economic Development Zones (ZEDES), with which function as financial, logistical, operational and even manufac-turing hub, which would be interconnected with a network of roads and logistics cor-ridors crossing each ZEDE with those already created Free zones collection centers and ports.
This project not only would provide a respite to international trade but would position Honduras as a major logistics centers in Latin America and the main asian hub in america to the eastern market of the United States. 15 of the top 20 ports in the world are in Asia and these have to be connected with one and up to three ports in the world to reach the eastern market of the US.
