Canal Traffic During July.

During the month of July, 1931, 406 commercial vessels and 5 small
nonseagoing launches under 20 tons measurement transited the Canal.
Tolls on the commercial vessels aggregated $1,848,638.45, and on the
launches, $36.75, or a total tolls collection of $1,848,675.20.

The daily average of commercial vessels was 13.10, and the daily
average tolls collection was $59,633.50, as compared with an average
of 13.33 transits and $60,713.62 in tolls for the previous month, and an
average of 15.74 transits and $70,341.19 in tolls for July, 1930. The
average amount of tolls paid by each of the commercial transits was
$4,553.30, as compared with $4,468.23 for the month of July, 1930.
Although commercial traffic for the past month was slightly higher
than the previous month, the daily average number of transits, 13.10,
was the lowest of any month since September, 1925, when the average
was 12.93 vessels per day. The average tolls collection in July, 1931,
was the lowest since October, 1925, when the daily average for that
feature was $58,913.38.

In the following tabulation the number of commercial transits and
the amount of tolls collected are shown for the first 7 months of the
current calendar year, with the daily averages of transits and tolls,
and the totals for the first 7 months of the calendar years 1930 and
1929:

Publication of Notices and Circulars of Interest to Shipping.

All of the Panama Canal notices to mariners, notices to steamship lines, and general circulars of
interest to shipping in its relation to the Canal are published in The Panama Canal Record. For
this reason it is considered unnecessary to make a separate general distribution away from the Isthmus
of such notices and circulars to those receiving The Panama Canal Record. Shipping interests
are advised to look for them in this paper, which is supplied to them without charge.

THE PANAMA CANAL RECORD



August 5, 1931



Net Tonnage of Vessels Transiting the Panama Canal During the Fiscal

Year 1931.

During the fiscal year ended June 30, 1931, there were 5,529 transits
of the Panama Canal by commercial vessels, including 10 naval
vessels, paying tolls on the basis of displacement tonnage, and 5,519
of merchant vessels, yachts, etc. Over one-half, or 53.3 per cent of the
5,519 commercial transits on which tolls were levied on net tonnage
were by vessels of from 4,000 to 6,000 net tons, Panama Canal measure-
ment. Five and five-tenths (5.5) per cent were by vessels under 1,000
net tons and 1.9 per cent by vessels over 10,000 net tons. The
average tonnage of all transits was 5,036 net tons as compared with
4,862 net tons for the preceding fiscal year, an increase of 174 tons,
or 3.6 per cent.

Vessels of Italian registry averaged the highest net tonnage, 6,989,
with those of Danzig second, 6,849 net tons, and French ships third,
averaging 5,545 net tons. The lowest recorded average by nationality
was for Colombia, 149 net tons, the next lowest 2,301 net tons for
Panamanian vessels, the third, 2,831 net tons for Spanish vessels.

The German liner Columbus, of 20,079 net tons, Panama Canal
measurement, was the largest commercial vessel transiting during the
year.

The following tabulation shows the 5,519 commercial transits in
groups according to net tonnage, Panama Canal measurement,
segregated by nationality, together with the average tonnages and the
per cent which the total of each group formed of the total number of
transits for the fiscal years 1931 and 1930.
