Beating the rush on tricky Panama canal transits
The biggest issue for ship operators is unpredictability on waiting times to transit the canal, as the transit schedule cannot be properly predicted prior to 96 hours ahead of time due to registration of ships in the transit reservation system. Advance planning is critical to expediting canal transits efficiently, so it is important to determine beforehand factors such as the vessel size and mooring configuration, radar and other equipment onboard to ensure compliance with IMO and Solas safety regulations, as well as calculate tolls for pre-payment.
