Protecting Agency

GAC’s protecting agency services help owners and operators supervise the charterers’ agency function and monitor port call operations.

Vessel owners and operators sometimes need to appoint a preferred agent to supervise the charterers’ agency function and monitor port call operations.

GAC offers a scalable service to owners and operators ranging from provision of a simple independent report, to full involvement in expediting a port call, including the following:

  • Checking proforma D/A submitted by the head agent for compliance with applicable tariffs
  • Receipt of owners’ funds and payment to head agents
  • Reporting the vessel/cargo status, as required
  • Checking cargo documents/SOF/ time sheets for correctness, notifying owner if not, and issuing letters of protest
  • Signing Bills of Lading
