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.

check in

Hi all

Just thought I would stop and check in. Travelling / working / sightseeing with my family this week and next.

Met one or two interesting people which i can tell you about in the weeks to come.

Shipping markets remain uncommited. China has started holidays which means a drop in vlume. Congestion in Australian coal ports becomes a huge problem and strangles supply. In other words business as usual! As i tell clients - always expect problems....if s voyage runs smoothly then thank the man upstairs.

Will check in again soon.
