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.

  1. Intersting to see you are so popular here in OZ VS...one question - I bought your Shipbroking Business Plan and was hoping you might be able to elaborate on insurance cover - what should I make sure I am covered for and how much am I likely to be charged for this as a start up broker in the dry bulk market?
    Many Thanks,

  2. howdy. You need professional indemnity insurance. Speak to any local agents down there and ask them what coverage stockbrokers, finance brokers etc take.
