As a global leader in ship-to-ship (STS) transfer services, we’re delighted to announce the opening of our new STS location in Chiriquí Grande, Panama.

The recent disruptions in the Panama Canal, which is expected to continue, have impacted trade flows, and have seen the number of vessels passing through the canal significantly reduce. In many cases, this has forced vessels to re-route, causing longer transit times and higher shipping costs.

With the introduction of this new, sheltered STS location on the northern side of the canal, our customers will be able to optimise their trading and shipping via STS, as well as break-bulk varying cargoes, including LPG and LNG.

For almost 30 years, James Fisher Fendercare has led the STS market and this newest addition to our established STS network, which is the world’s largest, further demonstrates the commitment to our global customers and reflects the trust placed in JF Fendercare by leading energy companies in protecting their valuable cargoes and assets.
