DELEGATE COMMISSION
OF STOWAGE COMPANIES


The loading and unloading of the vessels which enter port and which was originally carried out by the sailors of the vessels themselves, must nowadays be carried out by specialised companies, duly registered as it is a public service, and with all human and mechanical means necessary for their activity.

More concretely, it is this activity which is responsible before the vessel owner and the port authorities for the operations of loading and unloading vessels in port, at the petition of the ship owner or the person who chartered it.

Given the current sophistication of vessels (ferries, ro-ro, lifton, bulk carries, timber carriers, etc), to carry out their activity stowage companies have highly qualified personnel so that, depending on the operation to be performed, the operation is done with speed and safety and that the vessel is in port for the least possible time.

Likewise, they must have the best mechanical means to operate with different vessel possibilities, that is to say, cranes, lifting machines, fork-lift trucks, mafis, etc, etc, all of which help achieve the greatest effectiveness in their work and the best guarantee for the merchandise they handle.

All stowage companies must appear in the register for this activity in each port, as such, prior to starting their activity they must ask for the said inscription, supplying the information demanded of them, references, etc, etc, as is legally regulated under current legislation.

Currently, the mentioned legislation does not permit any company wich is unregistered or unauthorised by the corresponding port authority to carry out tasks of loading or unloading in ports.
