Main details of a firm offer – Voyage Business

There are of course many things to consider when making a firm offer for voyage business. Here is a list of what we consider to be the main ingredients:

Name of Ship & Description:
Present Position and ETA or readiness:
Cargo Quantity and Description: eg. 5% More or Less (MOL) Charterer’s Options (CHOPT)
Load Port(s) or berth: eg. 1sbsp, always afloat, naabsa
Discharge Port(s) or berths: same
Laydays / Cancel: eg. Sept 1-10, 2008

Maintaining a set of templates with option subjects, checklists, etc is of course prudent.  Much of your negotiations will probably take place via telephone but should always follow up in writing.
