The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) has announced a draft restriction effective April 30, 2019 due to the present and projected levels of Gatun Lake.
This draft restriction impacts the weight allowance per vessel and subsequently per container. Therefore, reduced weight limits will be enforced for containers on vessels traveling via the Panama Canal during this time. Containers which exceed the weight allowance may be at risk to be omitted from the vessel sailing.
In the event that a container has been impacted by this restriction, we will be in contact to advise the options available.
Please see the following announcement from ACP for further details:
