Transit forecasting made easy

The Panama Canal Authority (ACP), responsible for the operation and management of the Panama Canal, have implemented procedures to ensure smooth transits of vessels. But did you know that when planning your voyage you need to take into account pre- and post-transit processes? Thanks to its offices at both ends of the Canal, GAC Panama’s specialised services for canal services can provide the information you need.

Schedules, deadlines, and regulations governing operations in the Panama Canal may seem complicated but with our team of ship agency experts we make transit forecasting easy for you. We are on call 24/7 to provide you with on-the-ground knowledge and support, up-to-date information and timely solutions.

Have you questioned how you can secure transit slots? Or how far ahead you can plan your vessel’s passage through the Canal? Maybe you’re not sure if you can still transit on your booked date if your vessel arrives late. From early planning stages and critical arrival information, to securing a transit slot to auditing to avoid unnecessary charges, GAC Panama is alongside to guide you through the process.
