  1. Thanks for the post, as usual interesting.

    Wondering what do you think has evolved over the past two decades in the way broker work?

    In other words, what are the differences between Traditional Shipbrokers vs Modern Shipbrokers?


  2. Hallo, very interesting! so happy to find out your blog. P.S. i just become a shipbroker. Thanks :)

  3. Hi

    Shipbroking hasnt changes too much. The big difference is the use of technology. Other than that the basic skills are the same.
