Logistics: New Infrastructure in Panama Canal

A 7.7-kilometer logistic corridor that will serve for the mobilization of cargo in the Pacific sector was inaugurated, which will serve ports, industrial parks, factories and distribution centers.

Tuesday, March 19, 2019

Trucks using the Canal Logistic Corridor must be affiliated with the Cargo Pass system, similar to the one operating in the North and South Corridors and the Colón-Panama Highway. The toll has been set at $6.50 per transit, and does not allow entry with a negative balance or in violation of established rules, informed the Panama Canal.

Logistics: Can Competitiveness Be Restored?

January 2019

Investing in infrastructure that improves the connection between its main ports is one of the most determining factors for Panama to recover the competitiveness that is beginning to lose regionally and globally.

The Panama Maritime Chamber (CMP) presented its strategy "Maritime Vision Country 2019-2024", in which it analyzes that although the Canal was expanded and remains competitive at the port level in the region, the country needs to improve in terms of institutionality, human resources, infrastructure, processes and technology, to continue giving tools to the logistics sector to continue its development.

The Challenges of the Panama Canal

September 2018

Increased cargo traffic, improving the availability of water for the passage of ships and construction of the rolling cargo port, are some of the challenges the authorities of the interoceanic route face for the coming years.

Representatives from the Panama Canal Authority reported that the levels of traffic currently being reported have already reached the figures expected to be reached in 2020.

Panama as a Distribution Hub for Chinese Products

December 2016

The Asian country believes that the improvement in the country's logistical conditions as a result of the Canal expansion, represents an opportunity to set up a distribution platform geared towards Latin America.

"... 'Panama already serves as a bridge, or as a window for the transit of Chinese goods into Latin America, and I think with the logistics development in Panama this role will increase more and will be made more use of by Chinese enterprises'" said the permanent representative at the Office of Chinese-Panamanian Business Development, Wang Weihua, according to Laestrella.com.pa.

Panama: 1.200 Hectares for Logistics Development

March 2016

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.

The 1,200 hectares owned by the State and "discovered" after cleaning and dredging of the areas surrounding the Canal expansion are part of a development plan that the Ministry of Affairs of the Canal is preparing to start when the new locks come into operation. The initial proposal is to lease the land to private companies so that they can develop the area, providing logistics services, transportation and communications to related industries.
