C.Fernie & Co. was founded at the opening of the Panama Canal in 1914 and has operated continuously in service to world shipping since that time. The firm represents a broad range of principals having every type of vessel in maritime trade within its portfolio.

We maintain fully staffed offices with a partner in residence at each end of the canal.

Our experience in canal operations, passenger vessel support, tramp services, and both local and transshipment liner cargo activity is unmatched by our competitors.

Our knowledge base is further enhanced by our long experience representing virtually all Protective and Indemnity Clubs. This provides an in-house depth to our attendance in the vessels interest, that cannot be matched by any other Agency at the Panama Canal.
