Darien Gap

Need shipping partner from Panama to Colombia for shipment around 25 Sept 2012

Holas, I am looking for somebody interested in sharing a container for shipping from Panama to Colombia (probably Cartagena) around the 25th of September - I am flexible with the exact date.

I have a Jeep Cherokee (4.20m length) so another vehicle or motorcycles should fit easily.

I speak Spanish and have been looking into shipping it with Barwil (Wilhelmsen), but am of course open to other suggestions.

If you are interested please write to me at [email protected] or post here.

cheers, Frederik

Crossing from Colon, Panama to Cartagena, Colombia

After talking with some new friends here last night in Las Tablas, Los Santos, Panama, they informed of a new ferry service running from Colon, Panama to Cartagena which begins in May.  Here is a website that I found that explains more about it.  It is not running at this moment but you can also send an email to them as well.  The website is not working at all and I have not talked with the company yet.  It all sounds very interesting and opens up new doors to those of us who love to travel to interesting places.

Sharing Container Panama to Colombia Jan 27/28 or Feb 3/4

I am looking to ship a car from Colón to Cartagena. I have a quote from a shipper at $840 to $990 per car (sharing a 40' container). There are weekly shipments every FRI/SAT. My ideal date is Jan 27/28 but if I don't find anyone I am open to Feb 3/4. The shipper is EVER LOGISTICS and came recommended by local folks. They seem to speak good english and have sets of instructions about the process (attached).

You can use the contact form on this forum to get in touch with me, or reply to this thread.
