Apart from a full scope supply chain management service encompassing ocean carriage agreements with a number of leading carriers and providing full visibility throughout the transportation, customers with all air, or Sea - Air shipments from Latin America to North America can ship via the Damco Sea - Air hub in Panama.

“It is essential for us to never stop learning about our customers. Events like PMA serve as unique opportunities to meet with customers and learn more about their latest challenges and discuss how Damco can assist to add value in a way that our customers benefit and in turn can improve their competitiveness and become better at serving their markets and customers.”
