Panama became famous during the lengthy, arduous and expensive (in human and financial terms) process of creating the canal that linked the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Panama which eventually led to the Pacific ocean. What isn't often known is that the canal was controlled by the US military until 1999 when Panama itself became sole controller.

Given that Panama is the most industrialised nation in the region we do facilitate a significant number of parcels each week to the country. What also contributes to this is that fact that Panama uses the US Dollar to peg its own currency the Balboa- this offers a great deal of stability and a very low unemployment of around 4%. The fact that its economy is focused on banking and tourism also helps.
The growing eCommerce sector in Panama is aiming to be the biggest in the region, so month on month more and more internet users are making the most of getting online, so in years to come you could see this market take off and be fulfilling orders on a regular basis. The mainly Spanish speaking nation is also home to just short of 4 million people so it might not just be eCommerce that drives parcel traffic there, as customers who use our site send luggage, personal belongings and business consignments too.
