Ships Agency FAQs

What is a ships husbandry agent?

A ships husbandry agent manages the supply of goods and provisions to a vessel whilst the vessel is in port. This agent acts on behalf of the vessel operator, leveraging their local network to efficiently source everything that the vessel and crew need.

Vessel operators and charterers who utilize ships husbandry agents often benefit from savings and the ability to better-stock a vessel due to the agents local connections. This is why a husbandry agent is a common partner for operators in each port.

VertomCory provide husbandry services in ports around the globe. Contact us for more information.

Why do charterers and vessel owners use ships agents?

Ships agency services relate to arrangements made during a vessel’s call in port. Charterers and vessel owners are not interacting with the port or local suppliers regularly, so they use local ships agents to source and manage everything for them.

Typical port agency services include, but are not limited to:
- Pilot sourcing.
- Port booking.
- Tug arrangement.
- Husbandry services.
- Financial services.
- Hospitality arrangements.
- Customs clearance.
- Medical appointments.
