    Vessel Weight Limitations - Panama Canal

    Vessel Weight Limitations - Panama Canal   Dear Valued Customer,   The Panama Canal Authority recently announced a reduction to the Maximum Authorized Draft to 13.41 meters (44 feet) for vessels entering the into the canals Neopanamax locks, effective April 30, 2019. This is in response to a prolonged drought which has severely depleted the water level of Lake Gatun, a main source of water used in canal operations.   What does this mean for my cargo?   Though weight limitations will vary by carrier, vessel, and port of loading, prepare for reduction in allowable cargo weight, particularly for twenty foot containers. Overweight containers may face spot rejections or roll-over on specific sailings depending on vessel capacity.   Though the Panama Canal Authority maintains the right to refuse entry to any vessel over the maximum draft, actual enforcement may be lenient if water levels permit at the time of vessel passage.   For additional information, please follow the below links:    https://www.pancanal.com/common/maritime/advisories/2019/a-10-2019.pdf   Severe Dry Season Sees Fifth Drought Reduction for Panama Canal New Locks   Should you have any questions regarding this update, please contact your Customer Service Representative.     Sincerely yours,    OEC Group      The information contained herein is provided as a public service with the understanding that OEC Group makes no warranties, either expressed or implied, concerning the accuracy, completeness, reliability, and suitability of the information.
