I am a rather simple soul interested in shipping, freight, logistics, maritime, educating, mentoring, web designing, blogging, reading, movies, pets and golf..
I have been in the dynamic shipping and freight industry for over a quarter of a century and worked in several sectors of the industry like clearing & forwarding, vessel operations, stowage planning, equipment control, sales and marketing and management, in various countries..
Why am I writing this blog..??
The shipping and freight business is a hard enough business to understand and cope, even for seasoned veterans..
Having been in the industry for long, I thought, why not make it easy and less scary (trust me, I know the feeling) for people who are new to the industry or want to join the industry..
So I decided to combine
- my passion for education and training
- my knowledge and experience in the industry
- my IT skills
and voilà, the result was this blog that I started in October 2008..
Another reason that I started writing this blog was also to create an awareness in the media about the shipping and freight industry which does not feature all that well when compared to other industries around the world..
How am I achieving this..??
Simple – I write articles about the processes and procedures in the industry which is based on my actual work experience and what I have learnt over the years..
A lot of the articles are also based on questions asked by the readers of this blog, so don’t feel shy, please feel free to ask questions using the question form on the side bar or comment on any of the articles of interest to you..
Let’s be in touch..
