Hello – welcome all, I’m Humayun Kabir Chowdhury the author of this educational and learning blog about Container Shipping and Freight. I took my Graduation with honours and Master’s Degree in Economics from Dhaka University.
Started my career as a Manager in Bangladesh Shipping Corporation, the government owned national line & ship owner company of Bangladeh, in the year 1979 (BSC had a mixed fleet of 32 ocean going vessesls at that time) . Performed assigned responsibility with efficiency & reputation in the departments of Commercial, Planning, Finance, and & Secretariat during my long service career of about 30 years in BSC. As a commercial man, I had the opportunity to work exclusively in the field of Liner shipping, Chartering, Vessel operation, Sales & Marketing, Logistics and Management for consecutive ten years, at different senior positions. Also served in CMA CGM BANGLADESH SHIPPING LIMITED, a joint venture company of CMA CGM Shipping line as Senior Manager, Business Development & acquired valuable experience/exposure in the field of marketing.

I undertook foreign training on “Post-Graduate Management Studies (Port and Shipping)”sponsored by Netherland Government and conducted by International Maritime Transport Academy (I.M.T.A), Netherland for 8 months. The certificate awarded is equivalent to that of Chartered Institute of Transport (C.I.T.), London. As part of above training, I got the privilege to visit the countries viz Germany, Belgium, Netherland and England.
One may be interested to know why I have chosen blogging as a profession. The answer is simple. I like to share & disseminate my long working experience & knowledge on shipping with persons presently working as well as fresher willing to join in the maritime industry.
All my articles/postings are basically based on fundamentals of international shipping business and trade, updates of global shipping news and allied important issues/ topics faced by the industry.
