THE PANAMA CANAL RECORD



January SO, 1932



Comparison of Canal Traffic in December, 1931, with December Traffic in

Previous Years.

Commercial traffic through the Panama Canal in December, 1931,
with 387 commercial vessels carrying 1,648,904 long tons of cargo,
was the lowest December traffic with respect to these two features
(number of transits and cargo carried) since 1922, when 304 vessels
carrying 1,535,102 tons of cargo were passed through. The net
tonnage (Panama Canal measurement) of the commercial transits
passing through in the past month was 2,033,158, the lowest since
1924, when the aggregate was 1,989,196 tons on 407 vessels.

In comparison with December, 1930, traffic for the past month
declined 108 transits (21.8 per cent); 440,468 net tons (17.8 per cent);
and 517,980 tons of cargo (23.9 per cent). In comparison with
December, 1929, there was a decrease of 135 transits (25.9 per cent);
515,613 net tons (20.2 per cent); and 876,030 tons of cargo (34.7 per
cent).

In the tabulation below are shown the number of transits, net
tonnage (Panama Canal measurement), and the tons of cargo carried
through the Canal during the month of December each year from
1914 to 1931, inclusive, and for comparison the monthly averages for
the corresponding fiscal year ended on June 30 following:

Traffic by Commodities for December, 1931.

The following table shows the cargo carried through the Canal in the
United States intercoastal tiade and the totals for all trade routes,
segregated by commodities and direction, and also the grand totals by
direction for the month of December, 1931, 1930, and 1929. Cargo
statistics are compiled from cargo declarations submitted by masters
of vessels and in these declarations small items are frequently grouped
under the designation of "general cargo." These statistics are accord-
ingly not precise, but they are indicative of the kind and quantity of
cargo in transit through the Canal. The figures represent tons of 2,240
pounds.

Information from American Consuls.

The Consular officers of the LTnited States at seaports all over the world are ex offi-io representatives
of The Panama Canal for the purpose of furnishing information to shipping and allied interests as to
conditions, charges, etc., at the Panama Canal affecting the operation of ships. Tlie current publications
of The Panama Canal of interest to shipping are furnished to the Consular officers and filed for reference.

It is not desired that inquiries of a general nature be addressed to the Consular officers, or that they
be burdened with requests which should be made direct to The Panama Canal; but ships' operators who
may not be sufficiently advised as to charges, supplies, facilities, etc., at the Canal will often save time
by applying to the nearest .■\merican Consul.
