Protective Agency

Often vessels can be consigned to charterers choice of agents providing little option for protecting your interests. Laden Maritime in this case may often be appointed as protective agents so as to provide unbiased reporting and ensure that all parties remain honest.

When attending as protective agent we will appoint the charterers agent, placing them in funds, and collecting whatever invoices possible directly in order to better control costs.
