What is the marine provision?

The procedure of procuring and storing supplies and provisions on a ship is referred to as provisioning. Food, water, fuel, and other necessities for the crew and the ship’s operation can be included in these supplies. A crucial part of ship operation is provisioning, which guarantees that the crew has the resources they need to survive while at sea.


What is a marine slop chest?

A slop chest is a tiny shop on board a ship where the crew can buy personal items like clothing, toiletries, and other necessities. The purser of the ship, who is in charge of overseeing the ship’s funds and supplies, often operates the slop chest. Due to the higher cost of getting them to the ship, items sold in the slop chest are often more expensive than those that can be bought on land. For the crew, especially on lengthy trips, the slop box is frequently the only source of some supplies.


The provision of products and services to ships, while they are in port, is known as ship chandling. Provisions (such as food and water), deck and engine stores (including fuel and lubricants), and numerous other supplies required for the ship’s operation and maintenance can all be included in this list of products and services. To make sure that ships have all they need while in port, ship chandlers frequently collaborate closely with ship owners, ship agents, and ship captains. Additionally, they might be in charge of arranging for the transportation and storage of supplies and managing any documentation related to regulations or customs that is necessary for the import and export of items. Ship chandlers may offer a variety of support services, such as bunkering (supplying ships with fuel), waste removal, and assistance with crew changes, in addition to supplying ships with goods and services.
