“We are truly honored by this award. At the Canal – we have a set of Guiding Principles – our True North if you will, that inform and inspire our work. At the very core of these principles is our commitment to transparency, honesty, responsibility to the Panamanian people, our customers and the environment,” said Panama Canal Administrator/CEO, Alberto Alemán Zubieta.  “These principles are our core values and reinforce our will and passion to serve our customers and provide a safe, reliable and efficient service to the shipping and maritime industry.”
