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.

Voyage Estimation

Dry cargo voyage estimation tutorial now available

Hi All

The software is currently being upgraded (and therefore not available) but for a limited time you can purchase the amazing 'tutorial booklet' which is easily applicable for any dry cargo voyage estimation software.


So any current shipbrokers, charterers or shipowners with access to software you should think about adding my tutorial to your knowledge base

It is much more than a simple - how to do - tutorial. It is a 80 page practical lesson on valuable aspects of freight trading.

Its the only tutorial out there that speaks in 4 different voices...The broker, the charterer the shipowner and the freight trader

Plus I explain

  • How to find out port da's including a pro forma email to agents
  • How to calculate cargo intake for a bulk carrier
  • How to read market reports 
  • Difficult to understand concepts like Demurrage, Ballast Bonus, DOP vs APS Delivery, Backhaul vs Fronthaul plus more
This course would cost USD 2k to have someone explain this to you...
And mine is so cheap lah! (Less than 10 Euro for now anyway)

And don't tell your colleagues

Happy fixing
