    Fitch Ratings has once again affirmed the Panama Canal’s ‘A’ investment grade rating with a stable outlook for its long-term issuer default rating and its senior unsecured notes.

    The credit rating agency noted that the Panama Canal is “an underlying asset that is critical not only for Panama, but for international commerce, as demonstrated by its stable volume performance, solid competitive position, and well-diversified cargo mix,” causing the Panama Canal volume profile to exhibit high levels of resilience.

    “Fitch Ratings reaffirming the Panama Canal’s rating for a fourth consecutive year is proof of the waterway’s financial and competitive strength,” Francisco J. Miguez, Panama Canal’s Vice President for Finance, said.

    Also factoring into its decision, Fitch Ratings highlighted the Panama Canal’s legal framework that provides autonomy to the entity.

    Fitch Ratings cited the Panama Canal’s “extraordinary legal framework” as contributing to institutional, operational and financial autonomy, as well as sustained profitable operations across administrations.

    The ratings also reflect the Panama Canal’s ability to modify tariffs that have influenced demand and contributed to steady revenue growth.

    In May 2019, Standard & Poor’s (S&P) Global Ratings raised the Panama Canal’s rating to ‘A’ from ‘A-‘, ranking the canal two notches above that of the sovereign foreign currency.

    In addition, Moody’s Investment Services stated that the A1 rating of the Panama Canal’s reflects its strong performance after the opening of the Neopanamax Locks mid-2016.

    Florida’s Worldwide Terminals Fernandina has selected the Octopi terminal operating system (TOS) as it modernises its port infrastructure.

    The operator of the port of Fernandina will implement the Octopi TOS, developed by Navis, to monitor, manage and improve operations at the terminal.

    Designed to improve vessel planning and gate operations, the software can track cargoes moving between truck, vessel and rail; share real-time data; and can automate processes such as customer billing and inventories.

    According to Navis, Worldwide Terminals Fernandina handles 300,000 tons (272,100 tonnes) of breakbulk cargo annually as well as containers and project cargo.

    The implementation of the Octopi TOS is part of a USD10 million investment to modernise and expand automation at the port as well as its terminal infrastructure.

    “We are excited to continue our foray into the smaller terminal and mixed cargo market through this partnership with Fernandina,” said Martin Bardi, vice president of global sales, Octopi. “We look forward to being an asset to Worldwide in managing its operations more efficiently and are eager to aid in their continued success at the terminal.”
