Hello all, I am Hariesh Manaadiar the author of this educational blog about Shipping and Freight..
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, let alone newcomers to the industry..
Having been in the industry for long, I thought, why not explain about the business of shipping and freight in a simple, easy and less scary way (trust me, I know the feeling) to the 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..
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 and comments posed by readers under the various articles, so don’t feel shy, please feel free to post your comments on any of the articles of interest to you..
