Having a Ships Agency team in our time zone, speaking our language and understanding our needs is important in the business of the naval agency – keep the good work! BIMCO and FONASBA, the global organization representing ship brokers and ship agents, have once again banded together to create a new general agency agreement for port agents, shipowners and ship operators commanding port agency services. The Standard Liner and General Agency Agreement was published by FONASBA (Federation of National Associations of Brokers and Ship Agents) and approved by BIMCO in 2001. It is a contract between the line manager and his representative and it regulates, for example, obligations and payments to the representative. The last long-term agency contract, published in 2017, is part of the General Agency agreement. A port agent The Loadstar said today that he would take a look at the new agency contract to see if it could be adapted to the use of his business. Founded by the International Association of Shipowners BIMCO and FONASBA, the organization that represents ship brokers and shipping agents around the world, it was created in response to the increasingly complex needs of modern navigation and the increasing number of disputes. We offer clearly described services and prices per service provided. The price is always the same when we provide the same services in the same port – you know exactly why you are charged and do not receive nasty surprises. With a service contract, you can save up to 30% of the agency fees associated with fees.
Start your cost savings with the immediate impact of our service contract. The general agency agreement was developed for the provision of selected agency services over a period of time in a given area or territory. It is designed to be used in all trades and can be tailored to the individual needs of the parties. This contract was published in December 2017 and is the last edition. The copyright of the agreement on the General Agency is on the part of FONASBA. The publishers are BIMCO and FONASBA. The Agency`s appointment contract contains a number of standard provisions for the appointment of an agent for a single port call.
