Who is a Ship Chandler?
The marine contractors or ship supplier should be extensively knowledgeable about the nuances of the requirements of the captain and crew members of ships. They need to be quite familiar with the requirements during long voyages. They should be fully aware of what a captain of a vessel undergoing long voyages need (food provisions, necessary fuel and lubricants of the vessel, repairing and servicing of the vessel etc). Starting a business of ship chandling services requires clearance by the government of the concerned country and also from the shipping corporation of that country.
