Avoiding conflicting interests between the yard and the ship owner is one of the key requirements of a reliable agent. Dry-docking is a complex process and the scope of work involves liaising with various parties. The ship agent should not only have good relations with the relevant dry-docks, but also has to liaise with the concerned authorities, suppliers and service providers to ensure smooth operations.
