I have more than 40 years’ experience in the shipping business – 30 of them with two major shipping lines, and the other decade or so in transport, warehousing and freight-forwarding. I joined Brunel Shipping in 2009 and specialise in sea freight. My extensive experience proves invaluable for advising customers on all aspects of the shipping process, whether it’s finding the most cost-effective solution for standard shipments, or dealing with complex, out-of-gauge and project cargo movements. I’m proud of the fact that because Brunel is a truly independent company, we don’t have to try to shoehorn clients’ needs into certain systems – instead, we can always provide the best solution for each and every shipment. Most of my spare time is taken up with my family and pets, but I also enjoy reading and following sport.
