Worldwide global logistics provider DB Schenker is now providing last-mile services and supplying ships with needed parts and services as they make their way through the Panama Canal.
DB Schenker is delivering directly to the ships (both berthed and at anchor) all needed supplies, spare parts, provisions, and other goods. From its facilities in Panama City and Colon, DB Schenker is offering full-service logistics organizations with direct access to critical logistic arteries, including the Panama Canal, the pacific port cluster, and airports. The company works 24/7/365, including all holidays.
“DB Schenker has its own marine supply network throughout the world, but Panamanian logistics are complex,” said Carlos Villegas, DB Schenker Business Development Manager. “There’s so much opportunity because of the Panama Canal so we are now marrying our global experience with our local and regional expertise.”
DB Schenker is able to supply all of the major container ship carriers that are passing through Panama with parts, provisions, engines, or “anything that keeps their vessel running while they pass through the Panama Canal,” said Villegas. DB Schenker obtain the goods, import them to Panama, and then manage the last-mile logistics.
