Spanish term or phrase: agenciamiento
From a financial document regarding the shipping industry:

La compañía se dedica al _agenciamiento_ de naves
y la prestación de servicios portuarios relacionados al negocio de combustibles.

Does "agenciamiento" mean "buying and selling"?

English translation:maritime transport logistics
Explanation:
Agenciamento connotes active planning. Services would be OK but is not as specific and action-oriented. I think what is meant here is that they plan the transportation by among other things planning scheduling, use of space in their ships, paper work, etc.
