Panama Canal Authority to sanction tug captains

Monday, 16 April 2018 | 00:00

The Panama Canal Authority launched a process to sanction certain tug captains that refused to transit ships through the expanded canal, thus impacting the traffic through the Neopanamax locks, the authority said.

“The decision is based on the fact that these tugboat captains refused to fulfill their duty of assisting the transit of vessels through the Neopanamax locks, which affected the regular operation and caused a negative economic impact on the country as it affected the confidence of our clients and the image of the Panama Canal,” the authority said in a statement.
