A reliable agent in port is necessary to every ship owner or master to take care of husbandry matters. Agents with strong links to local service providers and the skills to deliver cost effective and on-time service are the need of the hour.
Diamond Shipping fits in perfectly, with a vessel – port interface which is crucial for the smooth functioning of the vessels in port, involving major maintenance, bunkering, supplies and crew rotation taking place. The need for husbandry services can mean sometimes the involvement of a different agent to that who is handling the port call. Diamond Shipping, however, provides professional husbandry services at the ports and terminals it serves, with a group of highly motivated and dedicated professionals using the latest information technology. This makes the requirement for a separate agent for husbandry unnecessary.
