Ship’s agents, or shipping agents, are those who carry out commercial and administrative duties in Italian ports on behalf of ship owners and sea carriers. They act as agents. The Italian law defines ship’s agents as those who carry out activities that include assistance to commanders in their relations with local authorities or third parties, reception and delivery of goods, passenger embarkation and disembarkation, rental acquisitions, finalisation of cargo and passenger transport contracts including the issue of relative documentation, as well as any other activity aimed at safeguarding the interests entrusted to them.

Ship’s agents can carry out their activities on a stable basis on behalf of ship owners and sea carriers, in which case they are defined as sea agents, or they can otherwise carry out their activities on behalf of ship owners and sea carriers on a completely occasional basis.

Their activities are regulated by law (L. 135 04/04/1977). In order to be eligible for such activities, it is necessary to be enrolled in the registries held by the Chamber of Commerce in one of the locations that host a maritime directorate.
