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.

Shipping Pedigree

Shipping has an amazing history. Some of Europes great families have been involved in shipping for many generations.

I found out recently that one of my direct ancestors was a ships captain in the Dutch East India Company way back in the 1600's. Found through ancestry.com and verified through church records.

Exciting discovery
