Turkey – Original disbursements documents from agent or sub-agent

Resulting from an issue reported by one of our members, we hereby alert our readers to the fact that it might be prudent to pre-check that a charterer’s agent or sub-agent follows the normal practice of sending the owner the original documents covering all cost items after final settlement has been effected.

Panama - Panama Canal scheduled locks outages

Based on present and projected number of vessels awaiting Canal transit, Condition 2 will be in effect at 0001 hours on 17 July 2000.  Applications for reserved transits under that condition will be received commencing 0900 hours on 14 July 2000.

Other sources indicate that this will severely affect the daily transit capacity depending on arrivals, and delays could be as much as 3-5 days.
