Who is a Charterer?

A charterer is a person or an organisation who hires a ship, truck or other means of transportation to move goods from one place to another. In some cases, a part of the capacity of the ship is rented. The charterer may be the owner of the goods being transported. Also, the charterer may be an agent or a broker that acts on behalf of the owner of the goods.
