Panama reviews some canal tolls

The Panama Canal Authority has released on consultation document on proposed new tolls and vessel categories for transiting the Panama Canal
Linked InTwitterFacebook

Preferring not to refer to any changes as an increase, the ACP maintains that it is “modifying” its charges “with the purpose of continuing to more closely align canal toll charges to the value of the route.”

The proposed changes include: redefining the tanker segment into separate categories for petroleum, chemical and gas tankers with different charges for each; redefining the “vehicle carrier” segment to include ro ro vessels; creating a new “container/break bulk” segment for mixed vessels; and creating three new small vessel categories for vessels under 100ft in length.

Some of the increases are fairly steep. For example, a laden general cargo vessel currently pays US$4.41 on the first 10,000 PC/UMS Ton (Panama Canal/Universal Measurement System for calculating displacement), US$4.32 on the second 10,000 and US$4.25 on the rest. In July the tolls will rise to US$4.74, US$.64 and US$4.57 respectively, and in July 2013 to $5.10, $4.99 and $4.91.

Full container vessels, reefer vessels and TEU on-deck tolls on mixed vessels are are not included in the toll revision.
