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.

Im still here!

An extended holiday in FIJI

So shoot me!

Will post something interesting (i hope so anyway) very soon..

Thanks all the messages - slowly replying to all..


  1. Hi VS, can you tell me more about the job of a bunker trader and the bunkering industry in Singapore? Also, what are the courses I can take to boost my qualifications? Thanks VS!

  2. Bunker traders are not shipbrokers as such but they are closely linked. Its a cool job well paid but not as highly paid. Good place to get contacts...

    A bunker trader deals with shipowners and sells them bunkers (fuel). Bunker prices are LIVE and quoted on the open market.
