By recognizing that the Panama Canal represent a very important expense on most trade routes, our team concentrates efforts in providing the appropriate advice to our principals by professionally explaining the possible scenarios in terms of expected delays and costs when their vessels arrive to the Panama Canal for transit. This information certainly assists in minimizing costs when using the waterway and maintaining schedule integrity.
Panama Canal guidelines and regulations are continuously updated. We are cautious that our customers remain permanently informed on these changes. For easy references, we publish and keep updated a MiniGuide for Panama Canal.
We maintain close relationships with P&I club representatives, ISO certification companies, Government agencies, local Ports and Panama Canal authorities for making sure that all minimum standards in terms of security and safety are strictly complied. A complete range of services required at the Panama Canal for each type of vessel (Car Carriers, Container Vessels, General Cargo Vessels, Tankers, Bulk Carriers, Reefer Vessels, Barges, etc), is provided by our group.
