We supervise your counterparty’s agent, and make sure your interest will always be well taken care of.
We offer protective agency both for shipowners (OPA) and charterers/cargo protective (CPA) to supervise the counterparty’s agent throughout the port call.
As protective agents we ensure that your interests are well taken care of. This helps you avoid any conflict of interest that may arise with many stakeholders involved in a port call.
Fast, reliable, transparent, available 24/7 and compliant. We recently had to involve Wilhelmsen as a protective agent in Port Sudan as we were not able to appoint/pay receiver's agent directly. Wilhelmsen via their Middle East office and local Sudan office, managed to act as a protective agent even though only appointed last minute. They got our vessel in and out of Sudan smoothly without any headaches for us.
