Unifeeder opens new office in Panama City

The Unifeeder Group has continued its expansion in Latin America (LATAM) by launching its first office in Panama City.

The new Panama team will serve Unifeeder businesses throughout LATAM in close collaboration with the global headquarters in Aarhus, Denmark.

Unifeeder expects to transport over 200,000 TEU and conduct 800 port calls in the area by 2024, and it intends to expand its LATAM operations further in the years ahead.

Unifeeder’s most recent growth in LATAM began in 2023, as part of its strategy focus on the Americas as a key site for regional and global commerce.

Opening offices in key markets including Panama and introducing new direct feeder services means we can not only offer enhanced logistics options to our customers but also create a positive impact on the local economy.

“This echoes DP World Marine Services’ commitment to comprehensive global solutions for the maritime industry.”

Morten Johansen, EVP Americas, DP World, said: “Latin America is home to major emerging markets and abundant natural resources, particularly agricultural products. It is therefore an important logistics and supply chain hub for the regional and global economy.

“As DP World continues to expand in the region, the opening of our first office in Panama and the introduction of new feeder coverage represent a key step forward in our strategy to become the logistics partner of choice in the region.

“I look forward to working with our customers in the region to develop solutions that ultimately enhance prosperity and lives and livelihoods.”

In February, Unifeeder signed a long-term charter arrangement for two more methanol-capable container feeder vessels.
