Reasonably, in the Panels view, a Member is not required to guarantee transport on necessarily any or all routes in its territory, but only on the ones most convenient for transport through its territory. The Panel found the measure violated Article V:2 because the right to proceed in international transit under the [provision for goods subjected to transshipment] is conditioned on whether goods arriving from Panama or the CFZ are trans-shipped, and not on whether the goods have a country other than Colombia as their final destination.

Focusing on the second sentence of Article V:6, the Panel observed: the second sentence permits a Member to maintain any direct consignment requirements that existed in 1947, whenever those direct consignment requirements were a mandatory condition for entry of the goods at preferential rates of duty or related to the Members prescribed method of customs duty valuation.

In order to offset or prevent dumping, a contracting party may levy on any dumped product an anti-dumping duty not greater in amount than the margin of dumping in respect of such product.

No distinction shall be made which is based on the flag of vessels, the place of origin, departure, entry, exit or destination, or on any circumstances relating to the ownership of goods, of vessels or of other means of transport. Any contracting party may require that traffic in transit through its territory be entered at the proper custom house, but, except in cases of failure to comply with applicable customs laws and regulations, such traffic coming from or going to the territory of other contracting parties shall not be subject to any unnecessary delays or restrictions and shall be exempt from customs duties and from all transit duties or other charges imposed in respect of transit, except charges for transportation or those commensurate with administrative expenses entailed by transit or with the cost of services rendered. All charges and regulations imposed by contracting parties on traffic in transit to or from the territories of other contracting parties shall be reasonable, having regard to the conditions of the traffic. With respect to all charges, regulations and formalities in connection with transit, each contracting party shall accord to traffic in transit to or from the territory of any other contracting party treatment no less favourable than the treatment accorded to traffic in transit to or from any third country.* 6. In Colombia Ports of Entry, the dispute concerned in part legislation authorizing restrictions on entry of certain textiles, apparel and footwear arriving from Panama, which could only be entered at Bogota airport or Barranquilla seaport.
