EXCELLENT BUSINESS WRITING FROM A "BIZ" GUY, NOT FROM A JOURNALIST

Writing clients welcome real shipping markets experience- in commercial, financial, and operational roles. Find the writing brochure here, and link to older articles (offshore energy, dry freight, tanker freight, FFA's/ clearing, mergers/ acquisitions) are here.

Why bdp1’s writing is better- a real live example from the Jones Act!: Here is an article written for Seatrade Maritime on recent developments at CBP (which enforces the Jones Act). Note that it brings in an outside authoritative comment, as well as infusing the writer’s own in-depth knowledge. Further, the article then draws in ongoing maritime developments where CBP’s Jones Act enforcement will come into play. Compare this with other treatments of the same CBP developments- which just parrot back the sterile press release from CBP.

The Panama Canal is a big theme. But instead of rehashing press releases, look for some authenticity and pulling back the curtains on conventional wisdom. Consider this slightly nonconformist view on LNG shipments, through the widened Panama Canal, from a leading energy markets analyst. And then....there is the HANSA article re the U.S. Presidential candidates positions on maritime matters. Again- probing rather than parroting back. And a follow up post election re infrastructure, also from HANSA, with a real example of Investment Tax Credits in action.

MUSINGS ABOUT PORTS

 

Ports are at the intersection of shipping and the rest of the world; to understand them, you need to blend shipping, landside transportation/ infrastructure, trade flow analysis, and then that whole other world- the public sector.
