3. Monitoring of operations: the broker monitors operations during the execution of the contract. This includes monitoring the vessel during transport and communicating with the various parties involved to ensure compliance with the terms of the contract.
4. Dispute management: in the event of a problem or dispute, the broker intervenes to resolve the situation. He uses his mediation skills to find amicable solutions and protect the interests of his shipowners.
5. Documentation: the shipbroker is also responsible for managing documentation relating to the sale, purchase or charter of the vessel. This includes contracts, invoices, etc.
