An Airborne Express captain is stuck on the tarmac at 1AM due to the earlier evening arrival of the VP.

Yeah, it's not clear to me what the "clean-up" was that they were talking about. It was either that DHL was contracted to bring down a couple plane loads of support equipment for the VP, or normal operations got backed up during Biden's arrival and DHL has gate priority. Perhaps Panama is a Central American hub for DHL or something and ABEX uses their facilities.

InterpreDemon, you are right, Panama is a hub for DHL Aero Expreso (D5). Furthermore, the VIP terminal AND the cargo terminal are near the end of RWY 03L/21R, so most likely that area was blocked during this period.
