Panama Canal / Monthly Canal Operations Summary – January 2018

Friday, 9th February 2018

On the following link [Panama Canal – Advisory to Shipping] you find Monthly Canal Operations summary for January with traffic statistics. We have noticed that over the last 12 months the number of Neopanamax transits are slowly increasing whereas the Supers are decreasing. Even when this tendency is barely visible is seems that the improvement of one segment is affecting the others and the number of transit overall is not increasing as expected. It could be that with the negotiations with the pilots and the acquisition of additional resources the Canal could manage to to increase the volume of transit and reduce the congestion providing a service that benefits all the shipping industry.

Below you’ll find the schedule of locks maintenance outages with all the details as duration, estimated capacity during outages, etc:


We will keep you posted on any update for the above topics.
