Ships agency

Different sectors in offshore marine contracting operate specialist vessels, working on specialist projects, which have specialist port agency and logistics requirements. Through our ships agency service we provide temporary importation documentation, ship agency and husbandry requirements, crew and spares movement, life support activities for project personnel or provision of launches and landside logistics requirements.

Peterson can provide a ships agency service for offshore construction companies, dredging companies, inspection companies and companies that lay pipes and cables.
