Looking to a share container to or from Panama to Colombia?

Please post your details in the thread below, shipping from and to and expected dates

RORO
The only roro service from Panama to Colombia is with SC Line. Rates and schedules for RORO are detailed here *


There is no Ferry Xpress nor San Blas

Container shipping
rates here

Example prices
Prices for North & South bound passage to and from the US, Panama & Colombia

This is to give everyone a clear idea of what to expect, generally RORO is always cheaper, there are no trucking costs, stuffing costs etc . Container shipping is more secure,

All Examples are for a 4x4 under 5m

South Bound
Panama – Colombia RORO - $860 + Colombia fees $152 = 4 days vehicle to be available
Container – Single 20ft $1800 2 Cars 40ft $2030 – Price per car $1015, includes all costs - 5 days for vehicle to be available
Motorbike RORO - SC Line RORO Motorbike rate: Ocean Rate: $380, BAF 20%, THC, $150, BL $50 Total around $656 per bike.

North Bound
Colombia – USA-FL RORO - $782.50 (does not include US clearing agent, and EPA approval is required if not a USA vehicle, I can provide details if required) - 6 - 7 days
Colombia – Panama RORO - $1400 (goes via the USA and Mexico first) 12-13 days

Container – same as above

All costs exclude passengers, when deciding which shipping option suits you best consider shipping times, and additional costs that may be incurred due to this. travel, meals, hotel or flights etc

If you are looking to share a container, please post your details in this forum just for this

We do not recommend the use of an agent in either Colombia or Panama. Most agents will get you to do all the running around for the DIJ, Customs and BL, so add little value for a cost of $150 - $200.

We have also been made aware that these same "agents" also quote more for the shipping rates. So please please book direct.

Many people have not used agents, so just ask for instructions on our forum or FB Group Log into Facebook | Facebook

Let me know if you need any help, advice or contacts, always happy to help if i can.

Shipping with Everlogistics - Container
Specific Information in relation to shipping with Evergreen Boris

You have to notify us at least the 6 days before the departure of the vessel, for make the booking.

The Vessel departure each Sunday and arrive to Cartagena Colombia on Monday night and you have until Wednesday to take your car out of port

Please visit our blog to compare the inside measurements of the containers with the measurements of your vehicle.

Crossing Panama: Container Measures

Cost at Panama:

-1x20 STD = 1,150.00 USD

-1x40 HQ = 1,300.00 USD (this is to share costs and space with another car, which is ideal and less expensive for each one. )

All in Panama . . . freight, documentation, terminal fees from Port, bunker and we guide you.(There is no extra cost here in Panama).

At Cartagena, Colombia you have to pay:

1x20STD = 700.00 USD

1x40HQ = 730.00 USD (this is sharing cost with another vehicle.)( between custom, port and doc. Fees) we cannot receive this pay at Panama.


Total cost for the whole process at Panama and Cartagena

20 feet container: 1850.00 (this include all the costs in both sides)

40 feet container: 2030.00 (this include all the costs in both side)(this is sharing with another vehicle each one pay 1015.00)


Load the vehicle into the container ca be done on Tuesday,, Wednesday or Thursday and the day before you have to do the inspection at Panama City. So, 2 business days for shipping process. One in the city for the inspection and another 80 kms in Colon, to customs and port.

The port is CCT (Colon Container Terminal).


Processing:

the idea is to start Monday to load Tuesday or Tuesday to load Wednesday. Depends on your choice and when you arrive to Panama City


Note: some clients put in a 40HQ container 2 vehicles and 1 motorbike so the cost is less per vehicle.

Hi guys,

We are looking to share a container from Panama to Columbia as soon as possible (thats within 1 or 2 weeks Central American Standard Time). We are currently in Costa Rica, but we are on a bit of a time crunch (only have 4 months for the whole trip).

I haven't had any luck getting replis via email from shipping coompanies, but still working on it.

You can check us out at www.thejuicingnomads.com and email me if you are looking to ship across soon as well.

Thanks
Ean

Would you be interested in looking at RORO? Its the cheapest way if not sharing a a container. The latest schedule was posted here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/OverlandSphere/files/

Hey folks. I'm on a small (250cc) motorbike, currently in Guatemala and expecting to land in Panama late May/early June. Like many of you I'm scrambling to find a way to get myself and my bike across the Gap, luggage and all. Am also looking into air freight, but I'm open to any real solutions. If anyone is planning on shipping their vehicles to Colombia around the same time, my email is heather@cracksinthepavement.com; blog, http://thefrighteningandbeautiful.blogspot.com.

Cheers,
Heather

Hey Chris...did already find someone to share a container with? And are you heading north or south? I'm currently in Colombia and want to get my VW van also shipped mid/end of October to either Panama or Mexico. Let me know if you're still interested!

In general, I tried to get in contact with SC Line to get RORO from Cartagena to Mexico but they didn't reply yet. Does anyone have a good contact?

Thanks a lot!
Alex

Hi Joanne - we're in Panama City and ready to head to Colombia asap! Looks like there won't be a RORO from SC Line until 11/10. Let's share a container! I'll figure out how to contact you directly. Otherwise please contact me at bdoochin@gmail.com.

Hello All! We (kevandemgoglobal) are looking to ship from Colombia to Panama in late Nov/early Dec. Anyone interested in sharing a container?! You can contact us here or at hello@kevandemgoglobal.com. Thanks!
We're currently on our way and will probably be in Panama ready to ship in the next week or so. Do you still need a share?
