Port Agency Services - FAQs
What are port agency services?
Port agency services are for vessel owners and charterers who need to have their port calls managed. Vessel owners and charterers do not always have access to a network in a particular area and benefit from dealing with a single port agent, who services their requirements on their behalf.
Services offered by a port agent normally include, but are not limited to:

What does a port agent do?
A port agent acts on behalf of a vessel owner or charterer to manage their arrangements in port. Good port agents provide a single point of contact for a vessel owner or charterer, in port, to ensure that their interests are looked after in the most efficient way.
Port agents remove the need for the vessel owners and charterers to find, contract and manage suppliers in a location that they have no representation in. Port agents often have an established network of suppliers which their customers can utilise for a reliable and cost-effective service.

What is a husbanding agent?
A husbanding agent is a provider of husbandry services to vessel owners and charterers. Port and husbanding agents supply vessels and crews with what they need whilst the vessel is in port or off shore. Provisions for crew, ship spares and chandlery, and vessel maintenance can all be provided through a husbanding agent.
In addition to vessel servicing, husbanding agents also manage port calls on behalf of the vessel owner or charterer. This includes arranging tugs, pilots and bunkering, as well as SERS declarations and customs clearances.

Who needs port agency services?
Port agency services are for vessel owners and charterers who do not have representation in a location that they will be making a port call in. Port agents provide them with an established network in a location so that they can manage their operations efficiently.
Using a port agent allows a vessel owner or charterer to call into more ports without compromising their own security or in-house resources. Port agents also provide protective agency services to ensure that their interests are being looked after when another party arranges the port operations.
Cory Brothers have a worldwide network of port agents, which allows us to service our principles wherever they need us. Contact us for more information.
What are the benefits of a port agent?
A port agent allows a vessel owner or charterer to benefit from a local network without the need for a presence. Local port agents have a network of suppliers in port and are in the best position to provide for a vessel when in port.
Using a port agent, who will have regular business with their suppliers, may allow a vessel owner or charterer to benefit from cost savings.
