The agency assumes responsibility for looking after your vessel in port and in this connection acts for the shipowner, which basically cannot be represented in every port.

We handle documentation for your vessel and all other services organised for the ship in port, including:

  • Estimates of port costs
  • Information on loading/unloading berths
  • Documentary handling of the ship
  • Placement of repairs, fresh water, provisions, etc.
  • Organisation of crew changes
  • Arranging places of transhipment and berths
  • Placement of tug contracts
  • Port disbursements accounting
