Some of you might be wondering why I am writing a book on starting a shipbroking company when I already run one. Why would I want more competition?
Simple reasons really. I think there is lots of room for new shipbroking firms. I also think the industry can do with a shake up every now and then.
Also there could be something in it for me. My company is a niche company and I have secure long term business. Some of you starting your own shops may need mentoring, business partnering, a transactional broker etc. You will know who to call...
Maybe we can have one of those win-win relationships marketers like to talk about.
Heard some good news today that the Chinese governments rescue package is starting to have an effect on the ground in China. Many shipping people point toward September and October when we wll see a nice rebound in shipping freight rates. This looks to be on track. Heres hoping!
