Who is?

Hi. I am a shipping company director, transport academic, author, family man and all round nice guy. I have worked as shipbroker, shipowner, freight trader and bulk charterer, in senior positions, with some of the largest and most disrespected (joke) companies in the world. Ask my advice on all things shipping and you will receive my blunt and always honest answer. Hang around to learn more about chartering and ship broker salaries, chartering and ship broker jobs, chartering and shipbroker recruitment agencies, cheap freight, maritime education, chartering and ship broker qualifications, become a ship broker, tips on how to be a successful bulk shipping executive, philosophy, Zen and the art of shipbroking, and much more.

Shipbroker start-up Table of contents


If any of you are considering buying 'Starting a Shipbroking Business" check out the table of contents below andplease make an informed purchase decision. The book is primarily based on the Dry Cargo Industry because of its general nature and becuase of my background. Overall though, any shipbroking entrepreneur will find the info useful.

Also the book is actually two books in one

"Starting a Shipbroking Business" and "Shipbrokerage Business Plan". Down the track I might consider selling them seperately but atm they are as one!
