It was brought to our attention by our members operating in Suez canal that there are some companies which quoted low for port agency fees and supplies in order to get your attention.

Upon receiving order confirmation, the appointed agency will then start asking for more money claiming they have missed the quotes out at the beginning.

In the case of some supplies which are quoted at a low price, the agency will not be able to deliver them to your vessel as they will claim that the items are rejected because of poor quality.

Watch out!
