Thomas Miller Visits Panama with Member SSA


  • Date: 12/05/2016

Kimberlee Baxter and Markus McMillin from Thomas Miller’s San Francisco office and Andrew Morgan from Chelsea Risk Management in San Francisco along with Robert Kempkens from Thomas Miller’s London office went down to Panama 3 - 6 May 2016 for a Claims Review with long-time TT Club Member SSA. 

SSA and its partners have invested over $800 million in their Manzanillo International Terminal (MIT) near Colon (on the Caribbean Sea side of the Panama Canal). MIT has a handling capacity of 2.4 million TEUs and transhipment operations represent 85% of its containerized activity. 

After their morning tour of MIT, which employs cutting-edge crane technology, the group visited the new Gatun Locks on the Panama Canal which are scheduled to open in June. They also watched a container ship transit the old Gatun Locks and learned a load of history, facts and figures about the Panama Canal. 

Altogether it was an amazing trip!
