Ship Agency: A Guide to Tramp Ship Agency Practice Third Edition

Except for the pilot, the first and last person to board or depart during every ship’s port call is the ship’s agent. In tramp
shipping, both in dry bulk and tanker, the selection of the port agent at the load and discharge port is part of charter party
negotiations.


The shipping industry is a vast and complicated business. Due to the many types of ships and the charter parties by which
they are contracted, the training of boarding agents or water clerks can be a long and complex process. This book aims
to make the process easier. It will also provide ship owners and charterers with an understanding of the function of the
ship agent.
