container > Panama into Columbia ??
We are travelling 4x4, already have some contacts for sharing a 40' High Cube into Columbia towards end of Feb
BUT . . . . . . . . . .
Have been told that there is a 'banana boat' working back n forth to the Coco Solo dock/port at Colon (Panama), aparently they have ramps on one of the ships used ( Elizabeth 111 ) and so possible to 'easily' drive either car or bike onto boat.
Again aparently these ships are 'happy' to shift vehicle AND humans!!!! at very reasonable cost (i know a guy who was quoted $300 for his landrover 110 about 2 weeks ago).
However, this option takes a bit of 'on the ground' sorting !!! ???
My question really is to ask is anybody aware of this route and does anybody have ACTUAL knowledge / contact with somebody that has done it ?
Timing wise if a few of us (bikes and 4x4s) can combine it should enable an easier arangement and safer processing and of course we all save money !
I know two seperate people who've moved 4x4s into Panama this year (2010) and so I have cost and details etc, anybody need ?
