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.

Happy Festive season to you all!

To the buyers of the books, the followers, the students, the posters, the consultees......thanks to you all for a wild ride in 2009.

Wishing you all a happy festive season (and christmas for those of you who are christians).

In the shipping world Christmas is a time when business almost comes to a halt. The same goes for Chinese new year celebrations which are also not too far away.

So those of you luck enough to have a break - recharge those batteries, spend time with family and friends and take time out to remember that there is more to life than Shipping...........

For those of you who will work through the break - your time will come. On the occassions I have found myself working over this break - I have welcomed the relative peace and quiet so its not all that bad.


One for the road - crank the volume up to 11!



  1. A most happy and prosperous New Year to you too. Look forward to many more interesting blogs and exchange of views.
