Hats Off !
by Sunil Mahanty
Well, Hats Off ! for a very interesting and knowledgeable site. You have delivered basic fundas of shipping containers very honestly. Hence, a great job done. Guru, keep it up.
Correct English should not matter much; if contents are (w)rightly mentioned. I was going thru Vietnam Business Invest - and in PDF downloads it states on the right top corner - Independence, Happiness and Freedom.
So, damn the world and enjoy your work as long it satiates knowledge appetites of people who are honestly looking for it; and I think this is the best site.
Having said that, and coming to the point I had interest in sea shipping and warehouse management; however shipping containers sure has a great future; please correct me if I am wrong.
I would be highly obliged if I am enlightened with the process flow of containerization costs that is involved- starting from renters, leasers, buyers, freighters, shipping lines, middle men, clearing agents rates when the cargo finally reaches the customers place (ordering in FOB terms) with shipping costs; say from Europe or US or Asian Ports to Mumbai, in India.
The basic idea is how to be more competitive with modern technology containers (interesting open top container technology from Korea) and how this line of container business is competitively operable and at the same time more economical for the customer.
I am looking forward to your help in receiving good material/ content/ reference sites - may be disclosure of shipping secrets.
Thanks & Regards,
