PANAMA CITY, FL, May 14, 2021 (Panama City News Herald) -Since Port Panama City's east terminal opened a year ago, almost 200,000 tons of cargo has passed through the facility. 

About 100 people gathered at a dedication ceremony Wednesday for the east terminal and east channel, which is located next to the WestRock Paper Mill in Millville and cost about $60 million to develop, said Wayne Stubbs, the port's executive director. 

According to information provided by the port, the Panama City Port Authority's vision for the east terminal is for it to mainly handle forest products, while the west terminal will focus on cargo containers and its in-port manufacturing partners.
