The previously announced toll increase has been approved by the Panamanian Cabinet and will take effect October 1st 2012.

See the Panama Canal Authority Advisory to Shipping dated August the 10th 2012 No: A-20-2012, giving details of the revised tolls.

Still outstanding is the question of the Guarantee Deposit (Buffer) and TVI Inspection Charge, and at this time it is unknown if there will be an increase on these two items. Skippers should note that the security charge has increased to US$130,00.

See previous noonsite history report on the toll increase here.

Our thanks to Adrian Holmes of CB Fenton for confirming the toll increase approval and to Karsten Staffeldt for the additional information.
