“The smuggling of cocaine to the United States and Europe from Colombia follows the depiction seen in Fig. 7.1; however, for maritime shipments there is a preference for the use of transshipment ports in Central America and Ecuador, and, to a lesser, but increasing degree, via West Africa. The U.S. government estimated in the 2015 International Narcotics Control Strategy Report that 83% of the cocaine smuggled into the United States first transited Central America (which includes Panama).”
