THE PANAMA CANAL RECORD



June S9, 19SS



CANAL WORK IN MAY, 1932.

The following is the report of the Governor to the Secretary of War,
of Canal work in the month of May, 1932.

Balboa Heights, C. Z., June 18, 1932.
The Honorable, the Secretary of War,

Washington, D. C.

Sir: I have the honor to submit the following report covering operations of The
Panama Canal during the month of May, 1932:

TRANSITS AND TOLLS.

During the month 357 commercial vessels and 8 small nonseagoing launches
under 20 tons transited the Canal. In addition to these there were 25 vessels of the
United States Government, making a total of 390 transits for the month, or a daily
average on all trafific of 12.58.

Tolls on the 357 commercial vessels amounted to $1,717,401.26, and on the launches
$38.37, a total of $1,717,439.63, or a daily average on all trafific of $55,401.28.

The number of vessels passing through the Canal last month was the lowest
recorded for a single month since February, 1923, when 326 passed through, and the
daily average of commercial transits last month, 11.52, was the lowest since January,
1923, when the average was 11.35. Notwithstanding the low number of transits in
May, 1932, all other features usually considered, i. e., net tonnage (Panama Canal
measurement), tolls, and tons of cargo carried, showed increases. Net tonnage and
tolls collected were higher than in any of the three months preceding, while cargo
tonnage was greater than for any month since October, 1931. This, of course,
indicates an increase in the size of vessels using the Canal as well as a greater amount
of cargo carried per vessel. The average net tonnage (Panama Canal measurement),
tolls collected, and tons of cargo carried per vessel in Ma^', 1932, were 5,482, $4,810.65,
and 4,697, respectively, in comparison with an average for the first 10 months of the
current fiscal year of 5,226, $4,577.81, and 4,387.

In comparison with the first 11 months of the fiscal year 1931, traffic this year
has shown a decrease of 18.7 per cent in transits, 15.0 per cent in net tonnage (Panama
Canal measurement), 21.1 per cent in cargo carried, and 16.0 per cent in tolls collected.
In comparison with the first 11 months of 1930, there was a decrease of 26.9 per cent
in transits, 20.8 per cent in net tonnage (Panama Canal measurement), 34.0 per cent
in cargo carried, and 23.2 per cent in tolls collected.

The total numbers of craft of all kinds transiting the Canal during the month of
May in the two preceding years and in 1932 are shown in the following tabulation:

■ Commercial traffic includes all ocean-going vessels paying tolls. Vessels in direct service of the United States,
Panamanian, and Colombian Governments, including merchant vessels chartered by these Governments, and vessels
transiting solely for repairs, do not pay tolls. Statistics on vessels not paying tolls are shown under "Noncommercial
traffic."

The following is a summary of the commercial traffic for May in the years 1930,
1931, and 1932, and comparison with the monthly averages for the calendar year

NATIONALITY OF VESSELS.

Fourteen nationalities were represented in the commercial traffic through the Canal
in May, 1932. Vessels of United States registry, with 143, led in the number of
transits, while those flying the British flag, with 88, were second. Vessels of these
two nationalities made up 64.7 per cent of the total transits for the month. Germany
and Norway were next with 28 and 22, respectively.

CARGO AND PRINCIPAL COMMODITIES.
The total cargo tonnage passing through the Canal in the past month, aggregating
1,676,790 tons, was the highest month's cargo since October, 1931. In comparison
with May, 1931, however, it showed a decrease of 248,662 tons, or 12.9 per cent.
Cargo from the Atlantic to the Pacific in the past month totaled 457,027 tons,
compared with 378,606 tons in the previous month, and 519,844 tons in May, 1931.



662



THE PANAMA CANAL RECORD



June 29, 193i



From the Pacific to the Atlantic cargo amounted to 1,219,763 tons, as compared
with 1,065,125 tons in the previous month and 1,405,608 tons in May, 1931. The
increase of last month's tonnage over the months preceding was due principally to
an unusually heavy month in mineral oil traffic.

From the Atlantic to the Pacific various manufactured goods, totaling 95,228 tons,
comprised the leading commodity, followed by mineral oils with 50,880 tons, cotton
with 30,883 tons, phosphates with 24,829 tons, sulphur with 22,937 tons, scrap metal
with 21,574 tons, and paper with 19,649 tons. Of these items, increases occurred in
the shipments of mineral oils, cotton, scrap metal, sulphur, and paper, while various
manufactured goods and phosphates showed decreases.

From the Pacific to the Atlantic mineral oils formed the leading commodity, with
shipments totaling 332,435 tons, followed by wheat with 209,624 tons, sugar with
163,438 tons, lumber with 135,343 tons, ores with 54,013 tons, and various canned
goods with 48,788 tons. Of these commodities, an increase in shipments was made
in mineral oils, wheat, sugar, while lumber, ores and various canned goods decreased.
In aggregate there was a decrease of 185,845 tons, or 13.2 per cent, in cargo routed
in this direction in comparison with May, 1931, while from the Atlantic to the Pacific
there was a decrease of 62,817 tons, or 12.1 per cent.



At present tolls are collected at rates of $1.20 per net ton for laden vessels and
$0.72 per ton for vessels in ballast, computed on the basis of the Panama Canal
rules of measurement, with the provision that tolls shall not exceed $1.25 per ton,
nor be less than $0.75 per ton as determined in accordance with the United States
rules for measurement of net registered tonnage. In order to ascertain the proper
tolls charges it is necessary, therefore, that the net tonnage of vessels transiting the
Canal be determined in accordance with both the Panama Canal and the United
States rules of measurement.

Due to this limiting proviso the tolls actually collected last month on laden vessels
averaged $0,897 per net ton (Panama Canal measurement), and tolls on vessels in
ballast averaged $0,720 per net ton (Panama Canal measurement).

Taking the traffic through the Canal for the month of May, 1932, the following
tabulation shows a comparison of tolls actually collected under the present method
of assessing tolls with the tolls that would have been collected on the basis of the
Panama Canal rules of measurement at the proposed rates of $1 laden and $0.60
ballast with no added charges for deck loads, together with the pro rata per net ton
(Panama Canal measurement) of tolls actually collected on laden vessels and those
in ballast. The traffic for the month is segregated by flag:
