All Seaports in Panama

Panama is a country with an important border line at the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. This provides an extraordinary opportunity to develop a network of national seaports dedicated not only to handling containerized cargo, but also a large variety of cargo either for local or international markets.

The Panamanian seaports in the National Port System (NPS) are divided into two groups: state ports and private ports. Private ports have been given to terminal operators after a privatization process of former state ports (concession). State ports are still operated by the government under the management of the Panama Maritime Authority (AMP), and basically provide dockage, and other related services for local users and short-sea services.
