Due to popular demand I am currently putting together a work book of various voyage estimating examples (dry bulk) plus explaining the techniques and the art in calculating them effectively.
Running a ballpark voyage estimation is an incredibly important skill for any good broker. It is also a brilliant way to learn how your customer thinks. Voyage estimating is the cornerstone of how shipowners come up with their freight rates for any particular piece of voyage business.
Over 20 years in the business I have run thousands of voyage estimations. I have run them in my capacity as a shipowner, freight trader, shipbroker and charterer. For each, the aim is slightly different. No one knows this better than the Virtual Shipbroker.
All the tricks and assumptions will be revealed. Should be available over the next month or so.
A must for all brokers, freight traders, charterers and shipowners.
