Panama’s Isthmus is considered one of the world’s most important maritime centers, because of its geographical location and because of the link between oceans that the Panama Canal offers.
The Panamá Canal
With a population of 3.2 million, Panama offers through its Canal a transit opportunity to more than 13,000 ships a year, generating for the year 2007 the amount of $806.6 million in income thanks to its operation.
Colon Free Zone
The city of Colon, located in the Atlantic area of the Isthmus, is the core of the famous Colon Free Zone, the largest Duty Free zone in the Hemisphere and #2 worldwide after Hong Kong. One of the many advantages of this Free Zone is having four ports located at only several miles from its location.
The strategic geographical location and the advantages for commercial development that the Free Zone has offered from its beginning have been the primary factors in the growth and leadership of the company with the most experience and largest volume of operations in the area.
