Crowley Maritime’s Panama liner and logistics teams have relocated to a new, shared location in Panama City.
The facility offers triple the warehouse and distribution space for bonded and non-bonded cargo. The warehouse has 25,300 square feet of space and eight dock doors, while the container yard has 38,426 square feet of space. A business office will also serve as the point of contact for shippers and consignees who are importing to and exporting from the country. The building is located within Parque Sur, a corporate and industrial park, which is close to the city’s Corredor Sur highway and Tocumen International Airport.
“In addition to being the only company in the area that can handle nationalized and bonded cargo, our proximity to major transportation arteries gives us the capability to offer faster and more efficient services for local shippers,” said Miguel Artiga, Crowley’s vice president of logistics for Central America, in a written statement.
Additionally, the liner team will maintain its terminal at the Port of Colon, which will now use the shared space as its main operating hub under the direction of Ruben Karamanites, general manager of liner services in Panama.
