Owners Protective Agents:  Chittagong, Mongla & Payra

Chittagong and Mongla are two major ports of Bangladesh. Shipowners mostly allow their vessel to call at this port under Time Charter or Voyage Charter. As shipping agents are nominated by the charterer, in order to protect interest of shipowners or operator, they often appoint a professional company as agent for port to supervise activities of the shipping agent (charterer’s), monitor the discharge operation, expediting lighter arrangement i.e monitoring the day-to-day operations on behalf of shipowners or operator. PANOCEAN LIMITED business mainly focuses on OPA service rather than handling for direct port agents.
