Safeguard your interest with Protecting Agency

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

There are times when you need to rely on a preferred ship agent to act as your eyes and ears on the spot to supervise the charterers’ agency function and monitor your port operations to protect your interests. That’s where GAC’s protective agency package come in.

At ports around the world, we offer vessel owners and operators a scalable protective service to complement our range of ship agency, husbandry, ship spares delivery and other support options.

It can be as simple as arranging an independent survey and report, to full involvement from start to finish to ensure that all port operations are expedited including:

  • 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

With our global shipping network, GAC’s protecting agency service delivers peace of mind for your port calls around the world.
