Logistics firm to expand its Panama operation
The Italian company Savino del Bene, which offers logistics and multimodal transportation services, plans to expand its Panama operations.
Thursday, July 3, 2008
The company's general manager in Panama, Doménico Mallia, expects to open an office in Colón early in 2009. He is also studying the possibility of opening a branch office in Paso Canoa to provide ground transport services.
The area in the Pacific entrance to the Canal could be leased by the State for the construction and operation of logistics infrastructure such as warehouses, cold storage facilities, ship repairs and a port for vehicles.
Panama has proclaimed itself the No. 1 logistical hub in America, but there are still some weak links in the chain.
The increased activity which comes from being a global logistics hub, expected to increase even more when the expanded canal is operating, requires an all encompassing regulatory framework.
If it wants to be at the top of the global logistic map, it is not enough to manage the Canal well, Panama must also realize its potential with a long-term strategy.
