Northwest Passage ice-free researchers find

This is the first time this has happened in October. This route cuts 7,000 kms from the Asia – Europe run. I would bet it also works for the eastern seaboard of North America, which raises the question, do we need a widened Panama Canal? Or expanded ports on the west coast to handle imported goods for the densest populated area of our continent (the US North East)?
