Generally when people mention the Panama logistics hub, they mention ports, the Panama Canal, the airport, however you only hear the Panama Railroad mentioned as an afterthought and it really is a major albeit silent player in the logistics business.
The Panama Canal Railway Company (PCRC) has indicated that the first quarter of 2010 has broken records in container movement since its inauguration. The first quarter so far has been even better than 2008 which has been its best year so far. In 2009 PCRC moved 250,000 container and in 2008 it moved 325,000 containers. They expect to move 325,000 containers in 2010.
