The Panama Canal is considered one of the wonders of the modern world, and one of the cornerstones of the nation's social and economic growth and development. Due to the geographical location of our country, the Canal has become a key point for global transportation systems, connecting two oceans and all continents, and allowing the international trade of goods by sea.
With a century of operation, the Canal has demonstrated its capacity to be highly efficient, and reliable to the maritime industry. A continuous improvement process of investing in infrastructure, new equipment, technology and human capital has led to the development of one of the largest engineering projects of the decade: the Canal Expansion.
After its reversion to Panamanian control, the Canal's new business model has been redefined to ensure a continuous, safe and efficient service, enabling it to become a highly competitive alternative with significant returns to the country's economy, providing always a world-class service based on excellence, integrity and transparency.
