DTA Ship Agency LLC provides agency services within UAE and through its network of sub-agents in the Persian Gulf region controlled through the head office in Dubai acting as Hub and single point of contact.
The Hub Office in Dubai handles all aspects of Disbursement Account management,
from verification of Proforma Disbursement Accounts (PDA) from performing agents, through funding of agents
to validation of Final Disbursement Accounts (FDA), with monitoring of variances and controlling that only
valid expense items are included. We ensure that the process of management of DA is fully transparent and
principals can monitor the evolving port costs, from PDA through to FDA.
This ensures that principals have a single-point of remittance for port costs, saving remittance and courier costs and freeing up resources in the principal’s own organization. This enables the principal to have one off-setting entry in its books, replacing hundreds or thousands of entries made to track advances to agents against individual agents’ accounts.
At The Hub Office, the experienced hub staff creates value
for the principal throughout the port call process. PDAs from performing agents are scrutinized
to ensure that costs are competitive. If costs are not competitive, the hub engages in a negotiation
with the performing agent to secure the best costs for the principal.
Operational hub oversees that the principal’s instructions to agents are adhered to and met at every step, and closely monitor the operational performance of the performing agents.
To ensure a fast and efficient response to any request from our customers, our staff works in dedicated teams consisting of an appropriate mixture of local and international staff to ensure all our principals' needs are met. Our Port Agency teams are on hand 24 hours a day every day to ensure quick, accurate and effective communication with our principals. Together with a thorough understanding of local laws and practices, our aim is to ensure vessels spend the minimum amount of time in port.
To help customers not only with their current operations but also with future planning, DTA Ship Agency LLC provides local market and operational intelligence such as line-ups, new port developments and availability of storage facilities at the port.
At DTA Ship Agency LLC, we provide the services required in the most cost-effective manner without compromising the safety of personnel, equipment and environment
