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. 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. The Agency`s appointment contract contains a number of standard provisions for the appointment of an agent for a single port call. The contract is concluded between the representative and a shipowner, ship operator, charterer or manager and sets out the benefits to be provided and the remuneration to be paid. This contract was published on January 9, 2017 and is the last edition. The copyright in the Agency`s appointment agreement belongs to FONASBA. The publishers are BIMCO and FONASBA. 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. 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.
