The workshop presents the full scope of service that an agent can provide, and on top how they collaborate with different stakeholders in a given trade. It highlights some invisible lines between appointment & nomination, who will do what and where the burden is. You might know all in bits & pieces but this was a good recap. I recommend this course to ship operators as well as cargo operators.
