Regular circumstances of work usually require certain actions to be performed on a Ship entering a port (loading/unloading cargo, tugging, etc). Concurrently with it, calling at a port may obviate the need for a number of auxiliary services to be rendered as well as certain formalities fulfilled and payments have to be made. Some of the operations require a degree of preliminary preparation before the vessel’s arrival while others, reversely, will not be complete until after its departure. The captain would find it extremely problematic, especially in least-known ports, to have to fulfill all the procedures of calling at a port without Local expert help. In Order to optimize carrying out such tasks around the time of a ship's stay in a port, ship-owners utilize services of ship agents.
A generally accepted definition in shipping circles is that the agent is a person or company acting on behalf of a Principal (ship owner, charterer, manager etc.). Appointed to carefully and with the Principal's interest uppermost without prejudice, look after that Principal's business, in so far as the vessel involved is within his (the agent's) Port. The agent is, in fact, the responsible representative of the ship owner, manager, charterer etc. empowered to take decisions, sign documentation etc. on behalf of the Principal he represents and keep all connected with venture well advised.
