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.

Historic Milestone (or not)

10,000 individual website hits since its inception!

Id like to thank my parents, my wife, kids and dog for all their support.

The truth is im not sure how accurate these page counters are. It registers a hit everytime someone surfs an old page so it in no way represents how many indivduals have visited the website in total. Either way 10,000 feels like its quite a big number.

Sincere thanks to all of you who regularly visit the site!

  4. Nice personal post from a happy reader! Just recieved via email.

    I have gone through your blog and find you extremely practical, knowledgible and surprisingly funny (ive not come across that aspect with people who are associated with this field in general!) which is just great and pleasently reassuring that people still have humour left in them, even in todays ever growing ratrace.

    As for me, here it goes...


    Yes the Industry participants can be a dowdy lot


  5. First of all I would like to thank you for a great resource, which I will continue to read.

    Secondly, I would like to recommend you to use google analytics (http://google.com/analytics) - it gives you a lot of interesting information about your visitors.

  6. Thank you hspd! I have thought about google analytics but believe it or not I am a bit of a technophobe. One day i will get around to it!
