SUBJECT: New Tolls Proposal
The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) has approved a proposal to modify the Panama Canal tolls system and the regulation for the admeasurement of vessels, to be effective January 1, 2020.
This proposal includes modifications to most of the Canal’s market segments, except for the general cargo, refrigerated cargo, and “other” segments. Also includes both Panamax & NeoPanamax Locks.
Panama Canal Authority is consulting and finalizing their study in order to provide or confirm the final new tolls structure.
As of now we understand the increase in canal Tolls should be in the region of 8 to 10 percent.
On the below website you may see the Proposal in detail.
We would of course continue to keep you well informed.
