    "To shorten the distance travelled by goods and people from Asia to Europe. Prior to the canal, there were three choices to transport goods: Land transportation the entire way. Ship through the Mediterranean and off load the ship, move the goods by land to the Red Sea or Arabian Gulf and reload on a ship. Go around Cape Horn, a dangerous trip during most of the year. The time savings, as well as the savings of wear and tear on the goods and the ships, was well worth the fee. The purpose of building the Suez Canal was to allow ships to travel between the Mediterranean and Red Seas, which would increase trade between the Middle East, Europe, and Asia. "
