In the three and a half years that I have been at Navig8, I can definitely say that no one day has been like another. The journey thus far has been full of learning and growing. While there has been heaps of new commercial shipping knowledge to grasp, at the same time since most of my prior work experience before Navig8 was in the oil tanker industry, I’d say that my learning curve has been smooth and infinite, especially as the learning never stops here at Navig8. Through my interaction with our external and internal customers, I have been able to gain a new insight on how commercial shipping functions not only as a business, but also as a fraternity. My role at Navig8 has also given me the opportunity to get to know different people working at organisations such as Oil Majors, Oil Traders, Ship Owners, Charterers, Technical Operators, Ship Brokers, Terminals and Agencies which is a priceless perquisite in terms of network and relationship building. Having been involved in managing differing types of tank vessels trading globally in multiple routes with multiple chartering entities has been key in painting the Big Picture or a Bird’s Eye View of shipping for me.
