    Ship Agency: A Guide to Tramp Ship Agency Practice

    This complete guide to tramp shipping covers, among other topics, the law of agency, duties and liabilities of principal and agent, how to select a tramp ship agent, managing a tramp ship agency and the scope of services provided.

    The shipping industry is a vast and complicated business. Due to the many types of ships, and the charter parties by which they are contracted, the training of boarding agents or water clerks can be a long and complex process. This book aims to make the process easier. It will also provide ship owners and charterers with an understanding of the function of the ship agent.
