A vessel strait passage agency service is a service provided to ships or vessels transiting through narrow waterways or straits. These services are typically offered by specialized shipping agencies that assist vessels in navigating through challenging and congested straits, such as the Strait of Bosphorus or Dardanelles.
The agency service includes a range of activities, including obtaining necessary permits and clearances, coordinating with local authorities and maritime authorities, ensuring compliance with navigational regulations and safety standards, and providing relevant information about weather conditions and other potential hazards.
The agency service aims to facilitate a smooth and efficient passage through the strait while ensuring the safety and compliance of the vessel with the applicable rules and regulations. This helps vessels to avoid delays and navigate through the strait with minimal disruptions.
