What condition will be in effect during the Scheduled Lane Outage at Pedro Miguel Locks?

During the scheduled maintenance from May 9th to May 16th, 2023, the West Lane of Pedro Miguel Locks will be temporarily closed. As a result, Condition 2 will be in effect, as per OP NOTICE TO SHIPPING No. N-7-2023. Applications for reserved transit slots during this period will be accepted starting from May 6th, 2023. Please note that the Just-In-Time (JIT) transit slots for supers will be limited to one per direction, while regular vessels will maintain their one per direction allocation. The daily auction slot for supers will be reduced to one, and the daily auction slot for regulars will be suspended. Neopanamax vessels will not be affected by these changes. Due to the reduced canal capacity, demand for transit slots will likely exceed availability. Please plan accordingly as no supers slots will be offered when the 3rd period opens.
