Please let me introduce the shippipedia.com to you!

This site has been created to provide an introduction and guidance into the world of shipping as well as bringing you the latest maritime industry news.

Primary it is designed for people that are new to the industry that needs to get a basic overview and get familiar with the terminology as well as for people who are interested to take online freight broker training courses. The idea of developing shippipedia originates from my own experience trying to introduce people to the industry.

In that process I learned that I was using many terms that came naturally to me but where like another language to the audience. Questions like “you mention a VLCC, what’s that?” or “you said ballast water management system, what purpose does that fill?” where raised.

Spending a huge amount of time trying to find good material I soon realized that there is a need for a site like this and here it is!

The site will be updated gradually with information and news and I hope that you will find it useful and would be grateful for your comments and ideas of improvement.
