Panama Canal Authority new “Disruption Charges” tariff

Panama Canal Authority introduced a new tariff. This new tariff, referred to as a disruption charge, is applicable as of 1 January 2023 to a vessel which disrupts or impedes the scheduled transit of vessels. The amount payable depends on the size of the vessel and whether the disruption charge is categorised as ‘low’ or ‘high’. The amount of the charge is not negotiable, nor appealable, although its applicability may possibly be challenged on the facts.

The Club’s correspondent, C. Fernie & Co, advise that this charge has been applied often by the PCA since the beginning of the year.

The Correspondent’s email and attachments may be downloaded below for additional details of this new tariff.
