    Answer: Lock System

    The Panama Canal is different from the Suez Canal as it has ‘Lock System‘. Both Canal are the most important ocean canals of the world.  The Suez route serves poor mountainous or desert region like those on the east coast of North America or South America.

    RE: Panama Canal vs Suez Canal Differences


    The Suez Canal is a sea level canal. There are no locks. Ships can sail right through. But the other side Panama Canal has Lock System, It takes something 10 minutes to fill a lock chamber  with 101,000 cubic meters of water. An average of 52 million gallons of fresh water are used in each ship transit.

    The Panama Canal, on the compass, goes from North West to South East. The Suez is pretty much north to south.
