Freight and transportation of cargoes

Chartering of vessels is a professional activity in search of a vessel and conclusion of a contract of carriage by sea and / or charter with the shipowner that meets the requirements of the charterer and the conditions of carriage by sea - the nomination of the vessel.

Freight ship - what do cargo owners face?

As a rule, owners, consignors and consignees of cargo, when it comes to chartering a ship for transportation, face a significant number of organizational and legal issues:

  1. How to find a vessel, a shipowner with a favorable freight rate?
  2. Which charter of sea vessels to choose (which pro forma)?
  3. How to reduce the risk of delayed arrival at loading / unloading?
  4. Under what conditions will the chartering of a ship fail to create losses under the main supply contract (contract)?
  5. Choose Russian or foreign shipowner?

It is obvious that the chartering of vessels requires extensive knowledge, connections in shipping, as well as the resolution of many organizational and legal nuances of cargo transportation, which can take considerable time in the absence of sufficient capabilities and knowledge.
