The Career Information and Profile of the Ship Broker will be described in this article. A Ship Broker is the go-between for ship owners and buyers/ charterers of ships.

His job is to provide professional advice to his clients about the market, and see a business deal through (from negotiating a contract to finalizing the details of the contract).

Any shipping-related business degree modules will be sufficient to enter this line. With experience and a good track record, one will be able to progress to Senior Ship Broker and other managerial positions.
