GENERAL CONDITIONS.


1. The rates fixed herein for supplies and services furnished to ship-
ping and allied interests at the Panama Canal by The Panama Canal
and the Panama Railroad Company, are subject to change at any
time, but it is the intention to keep them as stable as possible and to
make changes only when conditions make such action necessary.
Unless specifically fixed otherwise, these rates shall be applied wherever
similar supplies or services are furnished.
2. Prices generally will be fixed at a reasonable figure, which will
be a slight advance over the original cost, including the expense of
transportation and handling.
3. The rates for service of equipment quoted herein apply primarily
to the Canal Zone. For service of equipment over an extended period,
or under special conditions, or outside of the Canal Zone (accompanied
by Panama Canal or Panama Railroad Company personnel), except
as specifically provided in the tariff, special rates will be made with the
approval of the Governor.
4. For rental or use of equipment or property outside of the Canal
Zone (not accompanied or operated by Panama Canal or Panama
Railroad Company personnel) and in the Canal Zone where no rates
are provided, special rates and conditions will be made.
5. Except as otherwise indicated, all rates quoted in this tariff are
for services performed within the regular working hours of the par-
ticular activity by which the service is provided. Any additional
expense incurred by reason of the performance of work outside of
regular working hours will be made the subject of an additional charge,
based on actual cost plus prevailing surcharges.










Item 1.
AGENCY FEES.
1. The Panama Railroad Company, through the Receiving and
Forwarding Agent, is prepared to act as agent for any vessel using
Panama Canal facilities when such vessel has no other local agent to
look after its interests.
2. The agency fee is $25 per vessel. This fee covers the services
ordinarily performed by a local agent, such as boarding the vessel
to ascertain its requirements, arranging for purchasing fuel and other
supplies, sending cablegrams and mails, securing bills of health, having
consular documents visaed and similar services. For obtaining a
consular bill of health, only, see Item 19.
3. The handling of agency work for vessels stopping at Canal Zone
ports for handling cargo requiring soliciting cargo or passengers,
handling claims, etc., will be subject to special arrangement.









Item 2.
MEASUREMENT OF VESSELS.

1. For making an original measurement of a vessel to determine its
Panama Canal tonnage and issuing certificate thereof:
Launches and other craft up to 5 tons............................ Free
Over 5 tons gross to 20 tons gross, Panama Canal
m easurem ent ................................................................. $5.00
Over 20 tons gross to 100 tons gross, Panama Canal
m easurem ent.................................................... ......... 10 .00
Over 100 tons gross to 300 tons gross, Panama Canal

Item 3.
TOLLS.

1. Mei chant vessels carrying passengers or cargo, per net
vessel ton (each 100 cubic feet) of actual earning capac-
ity as determined by the Panama Canal Rules of Meas-
urem ent. .............. ............ .... ........... ........... ........ .... .... $ 1.20
2. Vessels in ballast, without passengers or cargo, per net
vessel ton (each 100 cubic feet) of actual earning capac-
ity as determined by the Panama Canal Rules of
M easu rem en t....................... .... .................... .............. .. .............. .72
3. Naval vessels, other than transports, colliers, hospital
ships, and supply ships, per displacement ton....................... .50
4. Army and Navy transports, colliers, hospital ships, and
supply ships, the vessel to be measured by the same
rules as are employed in determining the net tonnage
of m erchant vessels, per net ton................ ......................................... 1.20
5. Tolls may not exceed the equivalent of $1.25 per net registered ton
as determined by United States rules of measurement, nor be less
than the equivalent of $0.75 per net registered ton so determined.
6. Vessels returning from Gatun Lake to original point of entry into
the Canal, without passing through the locks at the other end,
are charged tolls for one passage only.
7. Vessels transiting the Panama Canal by prearrangement from
Cristobal to Balboa and return for the sole purpose of having
repairs made at Balboa dry dock and shops will be exempt from
payment of tolls, but a charge will be made for pilotage and for
handling lines as provided for in the current tariff or supplements
thereto.










Item 4.
PILOTAGE.
S1. Charges for port pilotage are based upon maximum draft;
rate per foot, or fraction thereof, provided such frac-
tion equals or exceeds six inches.._...__ ..-.... $2.00
2. Pilotage is furnished under three classes; viz: (a) transit
pilotage, (b) port pilotage, and (c) offshore pilotage.
3. Transit pilotage applies only to vessels transiting the
Canal. It covers the actual transit; and, in con-
nection therewith, berthing at terminals for the sole
purpose of bunkering and/or repairs.
4. There is no charge for transit pilotage, except for vessels
transiting the Canal from Cristobal to Balboa and
return for the sole purpose of having repairs made at
the Balboa dry dock and shops, in which case a charge
for pilotage will be made upon the maximum draft in
salt water; rate per foot, or fraction thereof, provided
such fraction equals or exceeds 6 inches each way ......... 5.00
5. Port pilotage applies to vessels visiting terminal ports
without transiting the Canal; and also to vessels
which, in addition to transiting the Canal, stop at
either terminal and there receive or discharge pas-
sengers or freight. All vessels, including vessels tran-
siting the Canal, using a port in the Canal Zone as a
terminus for the discharge of freight or passengers or
for receipt of freight or passengers, will be charged
port pilotage both on entering and leaving port.
Vessels transiting the Canal and using the port at
either end of the Canal solely for the purpose of se-
curing repairs, fuel, or supplies or for the purpose of
allowing the through passengers to land or transit the
Isthmus by train, will be charged pilotage only for
entering the port prior to transiting the Canal, and
for leaving the port after having transited the Canal;
except that no pilotage charge will be made, out or
in, for through ships stopping at either terminal for
one-half hour or less without going to a dock. No
charge for pilotage will be made against a vessel solely
on account of its acceptance or delivery of mails orig-
inating in or destined for the Canal Zone or the Re-
public of Panama. No port pilotage charge will be
made against local vessels under 65 feet in length and


MR 49660--2










drawing not over 6 feet of water when such vessels
are registered in the Republic of Panama or in the
Canal Zone, and are plying only between ports of
Panama and the Canal Zone, provided such vessels
are in charge of an operator who is licensed to operate
such vessels in Canal Zone waters.
6. Pilotage will not be charged when a vessel is shifted from
one berth (at dock or permanent mooring) to another
berth (at dock or permanent mooring). This exemp-
tion does not cover and will not apply in the case of
a vessel shifted from anchorage to dock (or permanent
mooring); or the reverse. Vessels assigned temporarily
to anchorage on arrival pending availability of berth
at dock, will not, however, be assessed additional
pilotage charge by reason of such double maneuver;
and the same general principle will govern in the case
of outgoing vessels.
7. Offshore pilotage applies to vessels taking pilots outside
Atlantic breakwaters. For this service there will be
made (additional to port pilotage in cases where the
latter is also applicable) a charge, per vessel, of ........ $25.00
8. Pilotage will not be charged against a vessel stopping in
the Canal prism solely for the purpose of embarking
or disembarking passengers traveling only from one
terminal of the Canal to the other.
9. Vessels transiting the Canal and making a substantial re-
duction in favor of Panama Canal and Panama Rail-
road Company employees from regular passenger
rates charged by such vessels between the Isthmus
and United States ports, will not be charged pilotage
solely by reason of embarking or disembarking
passengers and their baggage, when such passengers
are employees of The Panama Canal or Panama Rail-
road Company.
10. Vessels delaying transit of the Canal by anchoring in
Gatun Lake for the purpose of taking fresh water
or for other purposes involving no charges against
the vessel under other provisions of this tariff, will
be charged a flat rate to compensate the Marine
Division for additional expense incident to such
delay, as follows:
If the delay is for one hour or more, but not to
exceed 12 hours...... ............. ................ 60.00
If the delay is for more than 12 hours................... 75.00











Item 5.
TUGS, SUPPLY BOATS AND LAUNCHES.

1. Large tugs:

tion work, no charges are imposed for tugs.
(d) The Canal reserves the right to tow through the Canal,
at its convenience, vessels having a tonnage of 1,500
net tons or less, Panama Canal measurement; also the
right to take more than one vessel at one time. If
more than one vessel is towed at one time, minimum
charge will be $650, divided in proportion to the ton-
nage of the vessels towed, Panama Canal measure-
ment, with a minimum charge for either vessel of $200.
(e) U. S. S. Favorite:
For such service as would ordinarily be performed by
a tugboat ............................................ Same rate as for large tugs
(f) "Overdraft" vessels:
Any vessel arriving at a terminal poit of the Panama
Canal for transit with a mean draft in excess of that
allowed under the New International Load Line Regu-
lations for the tropical zone as determined by American











Bureau of Shipping, Lloyd's Register or other certified
credential, will be required to take the services of a
Panama Canal towboat from Balboa Sea Buoys to
Gamboa Reach and from North end of Atlantic Locks
to Buoy No. 3 in Cristobal Harbor, or vice versa.
The Canal, however, reserves the rights to assign a tug
to any vessel when conditions exist that make it
advisable in the interest of safety, regardless of draft.
The charge for this service will be at the tariff rate of
$35 per hour,with a maximum charge of $400 each way.
2. Small tugs:

First 24 hours or fraction thereof, minimum ....... 1,200.00
Hours in excess of first 24-
Per hour or major fraction thereof........-------........... 50.00
(c) The salvage rates will apply from the time the equip-
ment leaves its home station or place where diverted
from other work to salvage work, until return to home
station or to place where other work is resumed.
(d) In general, salvage rates will be charged for (1)
assisting a stranded vessel, (2) for picking up a dis-
abled vessel in the open sea, and (3) for trip to sea in
response to a call for assistance, whether or not assist-
ance is actually rendered, except that, as a general
rule, when a tug is requested for the purpose of picking
up and towing a becalmed sailing vessel at sea or tow-
ing a vessel from one port to another involving a trip
to sea, the regular tariff rate for tug service involving
a trip to sea in paragraph 1-b of Item 5 will be charged
from time the equipment leaves its home station or
place where working, until its return thereto.
(e) Since commercial salvage companies have established
adequate stations in the Caribbean area and are in
position to take care of all salvage operations, The
Panama Canal, as a general policy, will not engage in
salvage operations outside of Canal Zone waters
except where emergency exists, the emergency to be
determined by the Marine Superintendent. However,
The Panama Canal will continue its policy of answer-
ing calls for assisting vessels into port when disabled
within a distance of approximately a thousand miles
by the nearest sea route from the Atlantic or the
Pacific terminal of the Canal.









5. Trips through Gaillard Cut:
(a) Between Gatun and Pedro Miguel.......per passenger..._
(b) Between Gatun and Gamboa........................per passenger......
(c) Between Gamboa and Pedro Miguel......per passenger......
The minimum charge for use of tug Favorite or other
large equipment will be $40 for the short trips
and $80 for trips between Gatun and Pedro
Miguel. For launch Eunice and other small equip-
ment, the minimum charge will be $40 between
any of the points listed above.
6. Special excursion rates:
(a) Steamship tourist agents have at various times
requested The Panama Canal to make a reduction
in the regular hourly rates for the use of tugs and
launches for tourist excursions to points of inter-
est in Canal Zone waters, and along the Atlantic
and Pacific coasts such as Fort San Lorenzo, Porto
Bello, San Bias, and Pearl Islands, and for flat
rates per day or per trip, according to the length
of time and/or the number of passengers.
(b) Tugs and launches are primarily maintained for
use in connection with the transit of vessels
through the Canal and for ordinary harbor work,
and The Panama Canal cannot guarantee the
availability of such equipment for tourist excur-
sions considerably in advance. Neither is it in
position to name flat rates per day or per trip.
(c) When such trips require the use of equipment for
periods of twelve (12) hours or less, a reduction
of 25 percent in the hourly rate will be made for
all idle time due to passengers being on shore at
points to be visited. There will be no reduction
for a fraction of an hour.
(d) When such trips extend over twelve (12) hours, a
reduction of 25 percent will be made for each full
hour over the first twelve (12), in addition to the
reduction of 25 percent for idle time during the
first twelve (12) hours.
(e) If the tug Favorite is used, the rate will be the same
as for large tugs in paragraph 1-a of Item 5 with-
out making the additional charge provided for
trips to sea covered in paragraph 1-b of Item 5.

2. Cargo on board vessels when docked will be charged at the same
rate per bill-of-lading ton as the vessel herself. Bunker fuel in excess
of the quantity permitted by the Canal rules to be retained on board
a vessel in ballast when passing through the Canal, will be charged
as cargo.
3. The charge for docking and undocking will begin when the
floor of the dock is dry unless work of scraping the bottom is performed
as the water goes out. In that case the charge will begin when the
keel of the vessel lands on the blocks. Captains desiring to have scrap-
ing done as the water goes down should inform the dockmaster before
entering the dock.
4. Unless undocking is delayed by the vessel, time in dock will ter-
minate when the vessel is afloat and the dock gates open for her
removal.
5. If flooding the dock and opening the gate are delayed after com-
pletion of work, on account of lack of tide, lack of tugs, or for other
cause attributable entirely to The Panama Canal, no charge will be
made against the vessel for this delay, but if after the dock gates are
open the vessel can not be immediately removed from the dock for
reasons attributable to ship or her owners this time will be charged
at regular docking rates.
6. No charge will be made for Sundays or holidays when work is not
performed on the vessel. If work is performed on these days regular
rates will be charged.
7. The rate for docking and undocking will cover 24 hours from the
time charges begin. Each lay day will cover 24 hours.
8. The full docking or lay day rate will be charged for time in dock
in excess of four hours on any day. For any time less than four hours,
half rates will be charged, provided that not less than the full rate for
docking and undocking will be charged under any conditions regardless
of the length of time in dock.
9. If the dock is wholly or partially prepared for a vessel and she
fails to enter she will be charged at regular rates for the work actually
done, provided no other vessel is waiting to dock. If another vessel is
waiting to dock, the vessel for which the work was done will be charged
for docking and undocking at the regular tonnage rates.
10. If the vessel is not ready to enter the dock at the time set for
docking but later enters it without the docking of any other vessel
between, she will be charged for any expense incurred by The Panama
Canal in holding the dock for her, provided no other vessel is waiting
to dock. If another vessel is waiting to dock the time of docking will
run from the hour appointed for docking provided the dock was ready;
otherwise from the time the dock was ready.









11. The rates for docking and undocking cover the arrangement of
ordinary blocks, hauling the vessel into and out of the dock, pumping
the dock and shoring the vessel, and no extra charge will be made for
keeping the dock dry. Special blocking and shores and the cost of cut-
ting out and replacing blocks and shores in connection with repairs,
including the cost of the blocks and shores destroyed, will be charged
extra at regular rates.
12. The rates for docking and undocking also cover the use of floats,
staging, trestles, etc., in connection with cleaning and painting the
vessel or making repairs. The cost of work performed in rigging stag-
ing, etc., will be charged for at the regular rates.
13. The rates for docking and undocking cover also the services of
drydock cranes in connection with preparing the dock, and with hand-
ling and arranging ordinary blocks, shoring and gangway brows, when
docking and undocking the vessel.
14. Services of the drydock crane not covered in the foregoing para-
graph will be charged for at the regular rate per hour or fraction
thereof provided for in this tariff or supplements thereto.
15. Shores, blocks, staging, or other dock equipment damaged or
destroyed by the ship or her crew, except as a result of fair wear and
tear, will be charged at regular rates.
16. Any unusual expense involved in docking a vessel will be charged
against the vessel.
17. Vessels lying at wharves solely for the purpose of waiting to
enter dock will not be charged wharfage.

held 30 minutes for account of the Panama Railroad Company, and
at the expiration of which time, unless requested by the representative
of the vessel to hold them longer, at vessel's expense, will be

transferring cargo will be 25 cents.
11. All handling of cargo on docks operated by the Panama Rail-
road Company will be done by forces of the Panama Railroad Com-
pany. Vessels desiring to stevedore their own cargo will be permitted
to do so only on condition that such vessel or the owners or agents
operating the same shall be responsible for damage to property or
injury to employees of The Panama Canal or the Panama Railroad
Company as a result of the fault or negligence of the stevedoring force,
other than that of the Panama Railroad Company, employed by or
for such vessel.
A written acknowledgment from the agents of steamship lines or
from the master of the individual vessel desiring to employ their own
stevedoring force will be required to the effect that the liability, as
indicated above, is assumed by the vessel or the owner thereof.

to be handled.
If cargo is delivered on the docks without necessary shipping
documents to insure prompt delivery, a charge of 10 cents per ton per
day of 24 hours or fraction thereof or 5 cents per package per day of
24 hours or fraction thereof at the option of the Panama Railroad
Company will be made against the delivering carrier from the time
such cargo is landed on the docks until the shipping documents
are delivered to the Receiving and Forwarding Agent.










16. No change in routing shown on bills of lading will be recognized
or followed after check books and papers have been compared by the
forces of the Receiving and Forwarding Agent, covering cargo to be
discharged at the Atlantic or Pacific terminals. If delivering carriers
desire to change routing on such cargo, it will be necessary for them to
request the Receiving and Forwarding Agent, in writing, prior to com-
mencement of discharge to make such changes if they desire to avoid
rehandling charges. In the event such deviation from the original
routing necessitates rehandling of the cargo, a charge of 75 cents per
ton will be made against the delivering carrier.
17. Orders for outward cargo must be presented by receiving carriers
in writing between 7 a. m. and 4 p. m., at least 6 hours prior to the
time ship is ready to receive cargo, in order that there may be ample
time to properly prepare papers and cargo check books. Cargo will
be delivered or received from vessels in port during the following
working hours, which will not be deviated from except at the discretion
of the Receiving and Forwarding Agent in cases of emergency: From
7 a. m. to 3 p. m. and from 5 p. m. to 1 a. m.
18. Bills will be rendered on the tonnage (either weight or measure-
ment) most advantageous to the Panama Railroad Company. In
determining tonnage of lumber, 500 feet, board measurement, will

charged, commonly known as" freight" measurement.
19. Lumber and pig iron are accepted for transfer over docks only
on the assumption by the delivering line of all liability for losses and
damages except where such losses or damages are due to the negligence
of the Panama Railroad Company.
20. In handling transfer cargo and making local deliveries in Colon
and Panama, the Panama Railroad Company acts as the agent of the
delivering steamship line and its liability is limited by any provisions
of the bill of lading.
21. The Panama Railroad Company shall not be liable for losses on
account of fire, unless due to the negligence of its employees.
22. The Panama Railroad Company shall not assume liability for
losses or damages to commodities received on the docks in excess of
$100 per case or package, unless a higher valuation is declared and
the regular rates for the assumption of liability for such increased
valuation on valuable goods are paid to the Panama Railroad Com-
pany in accordance with the terms of this tariff.
23. Valuable goods and cargo freighted on an ad valorem basis
should be plainly indicated as such on bills of lading.










24. Transportation:
(a) Transfer cargo between terminals- -
Through cargo in transit across the Isthmus of
Panama will be accepted for transfer across
piers and for transportation over the Panama

(b) Isthmian cargo-
(1) On cargo landed on the piers at Cristobal under
through bills of lading for shipment over the
Panama Railroad for delivery at line points
or Balboa-Panama City; and on cargo landed









on the piers at Balboa under through bills of
lading for shipment over the Panama Rail-
road for delivery at line points or Cristobal-
Colon, the Panama Railroad will accept
forty-five percent (45%) of the through
freight when no other charges ordinarily
belonging in a through freight rate are shown
on the bills of lading. Under this arrange-
ment, the Panama Railroad Company will
handle the cargo over the piers into cars and
transport it over the railroad from shipside
to destination for 45,% of the through freight
charges, absorbing the pier handling charges
in its proportion of the through freight.
(2) When the Isthmus (pier) handling charge is
shown on the bills of lading separate from the
through freight, the Panama Railroad Com-
pany will take the handling charge and thirty-
three and one-third percent (331%) of the
through freight charges shown on the bill of
lading.
(3) When charges (other than the Isthmus hand-
ling charge) are shown on the bills of lading,
which are or should be a part of the through
freight rate, the Panama Railroad Company
will add those charges to the basic through
freight and take 45% of the total as its pro-
portion of the through freight.
(4) Cargo landed on the piers at Balboa for ship-
ment over the Panama Railroad for delivery
in Panama City will be subject to the rules,
regulations, and rates specified in subpara-
graphs (d) and (f) of paragraph 3, Item 34.
25. Bananas or other unmanufactured native produce may be
delivered to ocean-going vessels by small coasting craft,
upon payment of a right of basin charges of $0.50 per
ton for cargo handled in the terminal harbors, and $0.25
per ton for cargo loaded in Gatun Lake.
Vessels receiving cargo in this manner shall notify the
Receiving and Forwarding Agent, Panama Railroad
Company of amount so handled, either by copy of mani-
fest, or letter.










Under no circumstances, however, will vessels be per-
mitted to transfer cargo direct from one to the other
away from the piers, unless there is no berthing space
available at the piers.
26. When one vessel is allowed to lie alongside another vessel
at the piers or away from the piers when no bertdiing
space is available, requests to transfer cargo from one
directly into the other, will be acted upon in each case
by the Governor, The Panama Canal, and each request
will be considered solely on its merits. The decision in
any one case, in no way sets a precedent for future cases.
For cargo transferred directly from one vessel to another
where no work is performed by The Panama Canal or
Panama Railroad Company:
Bananas or other unmanufactured native produce,
per ton...... $0.50
Other cargo ..-----.................----.....--.........---..-per ton...... 1.00
Ocean-going vessels transferring cargo under the provisions
of this paragraph, shall furnish the Panama Railroad
Company with complete manifests covering all cargo
transferred, in order that complete statistical records
may be kept as to cargo transshipped at the Isthmus, and
permit a Panama Railroad Company representative to
be present during such transfer.
27. Cargo consigned to the Isthmus for reshipment beyond, when so
indicated on bills of lading turned over to the Receiving and Forward-
ing Agent prior to the commencement of discharge, will be classed as
"Transit Cargo" and subject to charges under Item 35, paragraph 1,
if forwarded complete as originally billed and the original bills of lading
are surrendered to the Receiving and Forwarding Agent prior to reship-
ment.
28. For rates for handling cargo from vessels in distress see para-
graph 2 of Item 30.










Item 35.
STORAGE ON PIERS.

(Definition of terms used-see Item 34.)

1. Transit cargo:
For first 35 days after delivery on pier ......................... Free
For succeeding 30 days, per ton per day or fraction
th ereo ............................................................. ........ $0 .03
Thereafter, per ton per day or fraction thereof............ .05
2. Transit baggage:
For first 72 hours (3 days) after delivery on pier.......... Free
Thereafter, per piece per week or fraction thereof........ .25
3. Canal Zone for Orders cargo:
(a) General merchandise which is actually received from water-
borne commerce for reconsignment to points beyond the
Isthmus, or merchandise originating locally for shipment in
water-borne commerce, will be warehoused "for orders" at
the terminal ports of The Panama Canal by the Panama
Railroad Company. The Company, which is a corpora-
tion of the State of New York, with the usual rights and
liabilities of a corporation, owns and/or operates modern
steel and concrete, fireproof, and ratproof piers at both
terminals (Cristobal and Balboa); and space on these piers
is available for the storage and handling of goods under the
arrangement "for orders."
(,) The essential working of this system is that goods are stored
up to 35 days without charge, and after 35 days at the
storage rates hereinafter specified, in custody of the Panama
Railroad Company, which issues a negotiable receipt to the
consignor, owner, or consignee, in exchange for negotiable
bill of lading and forwards goods on presentation of the
receipt and a form order, "Authority to deliver cargo from
storage on piers." Goods so received and stored may be
reforwarded by the consignor, owner, or consignee, in any
quantity desired, as he direct-, subject to the conditions
printed on the warehouse receipt.
(c) The charges for handling and storing goods consigned to
and forwarded from Canal Zone for Orders are as
follows-
(1) For handling from ship's side to storage place, or to
cars $1 per ton on general cargo, and on other com-










modities, one-half of the transferring rates provided
in paragraph 2, item 34.
(2) For handling from storage place to ship's side, or to
cars, the same rates as for receiving, as per (1) above.
The minimum charge for handling goods withdrawn
from storage place is $1.
(3) Storage: First 35 days after delivery to warehouse,
free; thereafter, 3 cents per ton of 2,000 pounds, or
11 cents per ton of 40 cubic feet per day or fraction
thereof.
(4) Special rates on special commodities in large quantities
may be obtained on request.
(d) The charge for receiving the goods will be made against de-
livering vessel; the charge for taking the goods from storage
and delivering to vessels will be made against the receiving
vessel. The charge for storage will be made against the
owner of the goods and will bb collected monthly.
(e) Any rehandling of goods for fumigation or other purposes,
or labor for repairing of packages, will be charged for in
accordance with the rules and rates for rehandling, repair-
ing, etc., provided elsewhere in this tariff.
(f) The Receiving and Forwarding Agent will use his discretion
as to what classes of goods may or may not be received and
stored under the heading of Canal Zone for Orders. No
shipment of goods requiring refrigeration should be made
to Canal Zone for Orders without prior definite arrange-
ment with the Receiving and Forwarding Agent.
(g) The Panama Railroad Company does not insure goods
stored in Canal Zone for Orders warehouses. Arrange-
ments for insurance will have to be made by the consignor,
consignee, or owner of the goods.
(h) As a general policy, various lines operating out of Cristobal
and Balboa to the west coast of South and Central America
accept their proportion of the through rate from port of
origin to port of ultimate destination for the haul beyond
the Isthmus, as explained in the following paragraph.
(i) In connection with the Canal Zone for Orders arrangement,
certain steamship lines agree to through billing arrangement ts
by which shippers are enabled to consign goods to the Isth-
mus and subsequently to reconsign them to any port be-
yond the Isthmus to which there is a through rate from port
of origin without sacrificing their right to the through rate.










This means that when goods move from New York to the
Canal Zone, usual local rates will be charged to Cristobal
or Balboa, as the case may be; but should the owner refor-
ward by water to any other port to which there is a through
rate from port of origin, he may do so upon payment of the
receiving carrier's proportion of the through rate from port
or origin to port of ultimate destination, plus handling
charges from storage place to slings of receiving vessel; and
upon evidence that the shipment, or any part of it, has
moved beyond the Isthmus, the initial carrier will refund
the difference between its proportion of the through rate
applicable and the local rate.
(j) Under through billing arrangements agreed to by certain
steamship lines, goods consigned to either terminal for
orders may be reconsigned to points beyond the Isthmus
and reforwarded via the Panama Railroad for transship-
ment at the opposite terminal upon payment of the receiv-
ing ocean carrier's proportion of the through freight rate
from port of origin to port of ultimate destination, plus
handling charges from storage place to cars. The handling
charges from cars to ship's side will be absorbed by the
Panama Railroad Company. In this case the Panama
Railroad Company's freight charges will be those specified
in paragraph 24 (a), Item 34 of this Tariff.
(k) Goods deposited in Hold for Orders warehouse, Cristobal,
which consignees desire transferred to Hold for Orders
warehouse, Balboa, will be assessed a charge of $1 per ton
on general cargo and one-half the transfer rates on other
commodities for handling from warehouse into cars at
Cristobal, and a second charge of the same kind for handling
from cars into warehouse at Balboa. The same charge will
again apply when the goods are reforwarded from Balboa.
The same handling charges will apply, vice versa, on goods
"for orders" discharged from vessels at Balboa.
(1) Goods consigned Balboa for orders via Cristobal, and/or
goods consigned Cristobal for orders, on which by previous
arrangement the destination has been changed to Balboa
for orders prior to arrival of the vessel, will be assessed one
handling charge of $1 per ton on general cargo or one-half
the transfer rates on other commodities for handling from
shipside across piers and into cars at Cristobal, and from
cars into the Hold for Orders warehouse, Balboa. The










same charge will apply when the goods are reforwarded
from Balboa. The same handling charges will apply,
vice versa, on goods moving under the same conditions in
the opposite direction.
(m) Goods to be warehoused "for orders" should be consigned
"Cristobal for orders" or "Balboa for orders." If the con-
signee named is not resident on the Isthmus the Panama
Railroad Company will receipt for the goods delivered on
its piers and transfer such goods to its warehouses, but will
not assume any liability except as warehouseman. In
case it is desired to reforward the goods the Panama Rail-
road Company will act as agent for the owner, consignor,
or cons'gnee. The fees for these services are as follows:
Reforwarding goods-
For each outward bill of lading .......--...-- $2.50
(n) There are no special forms for use in reshipping except the
warehouseman's order to release the goods ("Authority to
deliver cargo from storage on piers.") The shipper takes
out his bill of lading and consular invoice and the cargo
moves as regular outward local. Samples of the forms
used, "Negotiable warehouse receipt" and "Authority to
deliver cargo from storage on piers," will be supplied on
request to the Panama Railroad Company, Balboa Heights,
C. Z., or 24 State Street, New York City.
