Naves Supply is the preeminent maritime waste service company in the Republic of Panama, internationally recognized for our high standards and commitment to ending the pollution of the sea.

We were founded in 1997 in the Port of Balboa, Panama as a concessionary of the port operator Panama Ports Company, which operates the Port of Balboa in the Pacific and Cristobal Port in the Atlantic, via its concessions with the Panamanian government.

In 2000, Naves Supply became the first company in Panama to install an incinerator to render a new service: the reception and disposal of maritime waste.  

Prior to the offering of Naves Supply's services, Panama was "not in compliance" with its obligations in respect of the proper disposal of maritime waste, as established in the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, MARPOL 73/78.  


Working together with the local sanitary and quarantine authorities, Naves Supply participated in an awareness campaign to let the world know that Panama was now offering these MARPOL mandated services to ships coming to port, while the pertinent authorities updated existing regulations and laws.

To this day, Naves Supply continues to provide the services of waste disposal and water supply from our base of operations at the Port of Balboa in Panama City to vessels that dock at the port or transit the Panama Canal.

Naves Supply is the exclusive operator within Hutchinson Ports PPC, Puerto de Balboa (Pacific).  We also provide service in any port of the Republic of Panama.

We have 20+ years experience providing international waste management to major shipping companies such as Maersk Lines, MSC, and others, as well as to vessels of the United States Navy and other countries' naval forces.  Naves Supply ensures the satisfaction of the highest safety standards and full compliance with environmental regulations, as required by our important international clientele.

We are certified by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) as a duly accredited company for waste management in compliance with Annexes IV and V of the MARPOL 73/78 Convention.

In 2011, we were chosen to represent Panama in a Voluntary Audit before the International Maritime Organization (IMO), for the verification of Panama's compliance with the MARPOL Treaty.  With Naves Supply's assistance, Panama passed the audit successfully, making a significant contribution to the maritime sector of our country.

In 2019, Naves Supply was awarded a concession contract by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), an agency of the United Nations, for the collection, transportation, incineration and final disposal of international waste at the International Airport of Tocumen, Republic of Panama.
