PSA Panama International Terminal

PSA Panama International Terminal is a new port terminal built at the Pacific western-side entrance of the canal in the former US Rodman naval base by a Singapore government-owned company. This new port operator has completed the construction of its first phase with one berth of 300 meters length, and it is equipped with 3 Post Panamax quay cranes and 6 RTGs. The terminal began operations in December 2010 by receiving supplies and iron products for the Canal expansion. Their containerized operations began formally in 2012, reaching the number of 53,460 TEUs handled at this port.  

Location

Strategically located toward the Pacific Ocean, this first class port infrastructure aims to attract new cargo from Asia to the west coast of America by using Panama as a transshipment hub for the growing demand of shipping lines that need to carry more cargo to Latin American countries, and need more shore handling capacity to expand their commercial activities.
