Ship Agent in Panama Canal Transit coordination

The Panama Canal Authority informs that effective January 20, 2024, vessels from all categories (Neopanamax, Supers and regulars) that obtain a slot for a particular date through the auction process, and subsequently obtain a slot for an earlier date –also through the auction process–, will not be assessed a fee for the change to the new date, provided that the vessel was rejected for that date in previous periods due to unavailability of slots.
