Information Required for booking
Nationality of the Vehicle:
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.

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).
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.
