NORTON LILLY INTERNATIONAL (PANAMA), S.A. began operations on the Isthmus in 1925, and today is in the top three of nearly 30 agencies in Panama, representing approximately 15% of all traffic passing through the Canal. In March 2002, Strachan Shipping Agency of Mobile, Alabama acquired our parent company in the United States, Norton Lilly International, Inc. The merger of these two well-established and respected companies has produced the largest provider of agency services in North America, Canada, the Caribbean, Hawaii and Iraq. This enhances our Panama organization with an added depth and dimension not enjoyed by the majority of our competitors. Norton Lilly International is also a stakeholder in a worldwide network of trans-regional agencies "S-5 Agency World Ltd." (www.s-5.org).
