Please be advised that ocean carriers are experiencing unusually long waiting periods to transit the Panama Canal.

Since September, carriers have experienced major congestion at the Panama Canal due to interrupted maintenance work performed on the locks combined with high transit demand. The transit queue has developed in excess of 100 vessels and ships can experience upwards of 10-day delays. The Panama Canal Authority has taken some actions, but at the moment the severe congestion is ongoing and expected to continue through November.

WWL is working to ensure the highest possible priority for our vessels.

In the meantime, you can follow the E.T.A’s for each sailing’s transit of the Panama Canal, and estimated forward scheduled from that point on WWL’s website:


Please check the online schedules regularly, as date estimates may change.
