Sea Freight to Panama

Sea freight to Panama from the UK typically takes between 20-25 days depending on departure port and routing.  There are weekly sailings from the major UK ports including London Gateway and Southampton to Panama.  Thanks to our founding membership of the freight forwarder network MarcoPoloLine, we have a partner agent based in Panama City who are able to arrange local customs clearances and delivery to door.  This allows us to be able to offer our customers a complete door to door service when it comes to shipping to Panama from the UK.

Air Freight to Panama

There are daily departures from London Heathrow to Panama City for air freight, both direct and indirect routes available.  Typically air freight to Panama takes 1-2 days allowing for time either side for pick up, customs and delivery.  You may select a direct routing for air freight to Panama if your cargo is of an urgent nature but if you have a few days to spare then a cheaper indirect route might be your preferred option.  If you nominate Mercator to handle your air freight to Panama, we will arrange to pick up your cargo and deliver it to the airline, book space on the next available flight and even handover the goods to our agent in Panama (if required) to complete a to door delivery.
