Mr. William Andrews founded the firm of W. ANDREWS & COMPANY in Colon in 1889, and with the opening of the Panama Canal to world commerce in 1914, established offices with PAYNE & WARDLAW in Cristobal and Balboa. The firms took the final step of merging into ASSOCIATED STEAMSHIP AGENTS in 1975.

We maintain offices at both sides of the Canal, fully staffed with experienced shipping personnel. Each office is managed by a Director of the Firm, and our Principals may rest assured that every vessel consigned to our care receives the best of personal attention.

In constant touch with the Panama Canal Authority and Port Operators, one of our officers maintains a watching brief on every vessel from ETA messages through arrival to departure. Thoroughly familiar with the Canal and Port operations, we are able to prevent unnecessary delays and ensure that every vessel consigned to our care receives the most expeditious handling possible.

Inquiries concerning our business and financial standing may be directed to Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Agentaria and Citibank, N.A. in Panama.





On 13 January the Panama Canal Authority published Advisory to Shipping No.02-2020 announcing a series of measures in response to the low precipitation and the critical water levels of the two lakes that support the Canal operation.

A second Advisory No.03-2020 was published on 28 January with additional information pertaining to the water conservation measures and the specific actions that will be in place as of 15 Feb 2020. (PANAMA CANAL WATER STRATEGIES AND IMPACT TO SHIPPING)
