The most exciting shipbroker news in a very very long time

The realities of life as a shipbroker BUT there is some good news....


  1. I would like to ask you for some advise if I may.

    I am just working on fixing a tanker vessel for a charterer, via a broker. But the broker has added "total com 2.5 pct for distribution inc TCE." I am trying to research about TCE, however I believe if you can assist in its meaning, and whether this is advantageous for me or not, then this would be very much appreciated.

    Sorry, I know you are Bulk expert, but who knows...

  2. VS are you still alive ;)?

  3. I'm alive, I'm alive….(I'm screaming it very loudly!)
