bdp1 Consulting Ltd. is staffed by a group of people with years of operating and management backgrounds in the transportation business and finance businesses with specialty in financial writing, sprinkled with a heavy dose of shipping, energy and commodity market and transaction analysis.  As shipping companies have "re-structured", our writing and insights have been helpful to all involved. As PRIVATE EQUITY gets involved, our work has been helpful in identifying and valuing opportunities to unlock hidden values and repair balance sheets.


Our offerings also include excellent financial writing - You won't get a better insiders' view of drybulk and tanker shipping anywhere. Our financial writing is insightful and readable. We also assist clients in the energy and commodity businesses, where our shipping industry expertise has overlapped. Indexation of Rates, Values, Prices and a diverse group of Maritime Calculations are central to our activities. Our recent work has looked at MR tankers, the TC2 and TC14 baskets (well known to
FFA and Refined Products traders).

We can help HEDGE FUNDS, PRIVATE EQUITY and infrastructure players and the commercial banks, investment banks and others who serve them.

 

From our base in New York, we also have access to a stable of top talent from Ivy League schools to assist on a surge basis. The Principal of the company, Barry Parker, has an MBA degree from the Wharton School, and experience as a consultant with Booz & Company, ensuring that we see the world just as a world-class consultant would. In addition to his work in brokerage and finance, the Principal of the company was a Visiting Professor, lecturing at the World Maritime University in Malmoe on maritime information technology. He also has appeared as an Expert Witness concerning asset valuation of a fleet of container vessels and likely freight market scenarios surrounding them. bdp1 Consulting Ltd. is a resource to well known maritime and commodity consulting firms, as well, on freight market and maritime financial matters. click to get to Barry Parker's biography.

For Trendspotters- We are always practical, sometimes irreverent, but usually early and right about the big picture tipping points and trends. Our clients may already be in the maritime business, while others are looking to enter the business (or a new sector in its fragmented landscape) and need an intelligent guide to get them past the confusion and obstacles.  In order to penetrate the  shipping business, you need a trustworthy guide who knows the territory. Our team stretches from New York, where we maintain a network of academics and maritime academy students, to London, where we collaborate with Drewry- the best consultants in the business, and onward to Asia- where an ample outsourcing bench maintains data and provides economic modeling work.
