J. Cain & Co.

James W. Cain established J. Cain & Co in 1951 as the first logistics and shipping management firm to operate in Panama's recently established Colon Free Zone. With a staff of four, he set up shop in a small office and a 500-square-meter warehouse and began serving his first customers, Pfizer, Gillette and Farwerke Hoechst AG. Today, more than 200 people work at J. Cain & Co, operating with more than 30,000 square meters of warehouse and office space. The company has expanded operations beyond Panama to offer full logistics coverage throughout Latin America.
Always at the cutting edge, J. Cain & Co was among the first companies in the Colon Free Zone to move to fully electronic inventory and shipment-management systems based on bar-code technology and Internet access. The innovation strengthened the customer-supplier interactions that are necessary for successful business.

Customers benefit directly from the vast experience that J. Cain & Co has acquired after more than 50 years in business. The company takes business to a level of personalized service that not only exceeds expectations, but takes integration between its operations and those of its customer to levels seldom seen in business.
