The Wheel of Uncertainty

When I graduated from college and decided to go into international shipping, no one ever told me I was joining an industry with such a passion for gambling.  Ok sure, we don’t find ourselves in Vegas or Atlantic City often, but we do throw the dice onto a high-stakes table each time a booking gets made.  Don’t believe me?  Well, how about these proof points:

I face my fears head on, like jumping out of an airplane at 15,000 feet, picking up a boa constrictor, or riding on horseback among big cats through the African bush.  None of this compares, however, to the nerves and excitement I had leading up to my first opportunity to speak at the largest annual shipping event, the Transpacific Maritime Conference.

NYSHEX Wins Outstanding Shipping Internet Platform in China

Since joining NYSHEX last year, the team and I have been setting up offices in Hong Kong and Guangzhou in order to facilitate bookings and payments in China. We knew it was mission critical to have plenty of skilled boots on the ground, as well as the ability for shippers to pay, at the point of origin of most of the world's cargo.

I’ve always enjoyed listening to economists’ forecasts about the future.  But, you know what the brightest minds say about forecasting:  “Prediction is very difficult, especially if it's about the future.” (Thanks Nils Bohr, Nobel laureate in Physics.)

Many voices drive long-lasting change.

At NYSHEX (New York Shipping Exchange), we’re all about getting the smartest minds in a room to solve container shipping industry challenges.  That’s why, in addition to our Board of Directors, we have a Member Council, composed of BCO shippers and NVOCCs, as well as an Emeritus Board.
