Panama – often used as a shortcut between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans - is home to one of the most important ports in Latin America and for the transshipment of goods worldwide. WWL has some 28 calls at the port per month and recently opened its 11th global Equipment Processing Centre (EPC) here in early 2012.
ABOUT THE PORT
Located right at the Atlantic Ocean end of the Panama Canal, the Manzanillo International Terminal is immediately next to the Colón Free Trade Zone, a massive area for the reshipment of merchandise to Latin America and the Caribbean. The Terminal area itself started as a vehicle storage and distribution facility for Latin America, then became a port for roll-on, roll-off (RoRo) vessels in the 1980s. Today it is both the busiest RoRo port and the largest container transshipment terminal in Latin America.
