Hub Agency FAQs

How can charterers benefit from cargo shipping trends?

Cargo shipping trends help charterers identify business opportunities when their contracts are close to expiring. By knowing seasonal, or gradual, changes in cargo flows, charterers can lease and sell their space for the optimum amount of time, in the best areas, to capitalise on their space.

Cargo trends can also be used to plan for contingencies in the event that a crisis restricts their current operations and they need to pivot. Having the data available to them gives them the advantage over others who will need to ascertain this after the crisis begins, by which time the best opportunity has been seized.

VertomCory collect and distribute marketing data from around the globe. Contact us for more information.

Where do you use protective agents in shipping?

Protective agents are used by shipowners and charterers to supervise operations when they are not the arranging party. This is to ensure that any costs and transfers of liability are correctly processed so that the shipowner/charterer does not pay more than they need to.

Protective agents are familiar with the area of operation, the normal tariffs, and the relevant legal considerations, placing them on equal footing with the contracted parties. This understanding reduces the risk of corruption when a shipowner or charterer is operating in an area that they do not have a presence in.

Financial services may also be offered by protective agents, allowing for easier processing of funds to the relevant recipients through a single point of contact.
