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.

China / OZ Iron ore wars

Thanks to those of you who emailed me that the famous shipping newspaper "Tradewinds" have run with an opinion piece touching on the same subject as my last few posts. This has happened a few times over the last 12 months. Im glad to see that the editors there read my blog.

They could offer me a freelance writing position if they wish! (im sure they have spellcheckers!)
