About the Author
George Tsoudis received his early education at public schools in a northern suburb of Athens. After graduating from high school, he decided to follow his island’s tradition and get involved with the sea. He enrolled in the most famous Greek school for maritime studies, where he studied shipping. Upon graduation, he received also the State Degree for Specialization in the Shipping Sector, and then moved to London in order to complete his studies in shipping at the London School of Foreign Trade. He started out as a competitive broker in late 1983 and has since been employed in shipping agencies (ship-owners and charterers), while he has also been involved in operations and claim departments for all type/size of dry cargo ships. Seeing that the young brokers may need his knowledge in starting their careers, as well as to also to assist his colleagues in certain specific areas, he decided to publish his first book containing all the experience gained during the performance of his duties in the various departments of shipping agencies.
