Demurrage represents a key part of the Shipping industry where it is essential to provide the correct advice and guidance to Oil and Freight Traders on the potential recovery of demurrage and other voyage related expenses. Typical responsibilities include calculating and preparing freight, hire, demurrage, deviation and expense claims, working in accordance with governing charter parties.
This includes verifying vendor invoices for voyage related bunker costs and broker commissions, reviewing port cost charges, identifying recoverable costs, maintaining performance records of vessels time chartered in and out and on spot fixtures, receiving, negotiating and sometimes rejecting claims from Third Party Owners on chartered vessels, making sure the Trade book is always fully informed of changes to P&L, ensuring that all payments are authorized, calculating any deviation and detention costs.
Ship Operations revolve around daily communication with Vessel Owners, Charterers, Brokers and Port Agents as well as internal departments including technical, accounting and finance in order to ensure full compliance with contract terms for every voyage. These roles include monitoring vessel performance data and fixture results, arranging in-port operations, inspections, surveys and documentation, monitoring contract performance, controlling payments for services relating to each voyage and disbursements and chasing post-fixture balances, reporting to all the different departments along the way. These roles are crucial to the success of the cargo shipments so it is essential that only highly qualified, professional individuals are located who have a keen eye for attention to detail and for timely reporting.
