Our history
MIT started operations on April 16, 1995, in an area near the Atlantic entrance of the Panama Canal, immediately adjacent to the Colon Free Zone (CFZ) location. The project area, known as South Coco Solo, was a naval air base the United States during World War II, which subsequently reverted to Panama because of the Torrijos-Carter treaties of 1977.

After reversion to Panama, the area was used as a storage and distribution center for Latin America vehicles. In the following years it was decided to build a pier Ro-Ro (roll-on / roll-off) to facilitate the activities of import and re-export of cars from the stockyard.

In August 1993, with the arrival of the multinational Stevedoring Services of America (now SSA Marine) to Panama, the original concept of spring Ro-Ro became the terminal container transshipment it is today, with more than 1,600 meters quayside gantry cranes equipped with modern computer and management systems. The total cost of the project to date totals more than 650 million.
Statistics | TEUs Moved
As one of the most important port terminals in Latin America, Manzanillo International Terminal-Panama is part of the global cargo movement logistic system.

Since MIT provides connectivity to some 125 ports through its trans-shipment operations, its statistics generate, in addition to local data, a representation of the global cargo movement in recent years.

MIT may also execute agreements with third parties for the transfer of personal data outside of the EU using European Commission-approved Standard Contract Clauses.
