Suppliers – Enter The Conversation

Shipping industry people tend to stick together. That’s as true on the Internet as at the industry exhibitions. As a supplier, it makes sense to participate in these emerging online communities.

Find out who’s blogging about shipping issues. Read the blog posts and comment when you’ve got something to add.

Join the shipping groups on LinkedIn the business networking website, and participate in the discussion forums.

Our own blog is gaining readers every week and our LinkedIn Group – The ShipServ Maritime Trading Network on LinkedIn, is host to all sorts of interesting discussions (you need to create a profile on LinkedIn to join, but it’s free).
