 Career at Sea
Have you ever considered a career at sea ? Sailing as an officer with a salary of 14000 US $ per month within the global merchant shipping industry. Over 90% of world trade is carried by the international shipping industry. Without shipping the import and export of goods on the scale necessary for the modern world would not be possible. Shipping is regulated globally by the International Maritime Organization (IMO).The harsh nature of the sea exposes ships to considerable physical risk, so a total commitment to safety pervade all deep sea shipping operations. Seaborne trade continues to expand, bringing benefits for consumers across the world through low and decreasing freight costs. Thanks to the growing efficiency of shipping as a mode of transport and increased economic liberalization, the prospects for the industry's further growth continue to be strong. The robust world economy, fuelled by Chinese and Indian growth, is driving the demand for tonnage to unprecedented heights. Shipyards are flush with shipping tonnage orders for next 5 to 6 years and the level of scrapping old tonnage is at its historical low as the high freight rates continue to make even the old tonnage profitable. There are around 50,000 merchant ships trading internationally, transporting every kind of cargo. The world fleet is registered in over 150 nations, and manned by over a million seafarers of virtually every nationality. The Indians play an important part in providing third party ship management solutions to the Ship owners. The global shipping is increasingly relying on India as a favored source of its current and future seafarer demand, because it acknowledges that India has the means to satisfy the number shortage and the Indian recruitment system provides the strongest foundation for building high standards of skills, initiatives, professionalism and leadership required by the modern seafarers.

 Types of Ships
Until ships started to be built to carry specific and specialized cargoes, all ships were simply general cargo ship, i.e. built to carry all types of cargoes e.g. drums of asphalt or caustic soda, cases of machinery, boxes or cartons containing ebearings or electronic goods, Radios, transistors, steel plates, paper rolls, cases of TEA, Bags of coffee seeds etc. General cargo ships hold were further compartmentalized by one or two deck under the main deck so that different type of cargo carried by these ships could be separately stored. The role of the general cargo vessel began to wane with the arrival of big size bulk carrier and tankers, but the decline of these general cargo vessel has accelerated since the advent of containerization (in the 1960).Not only are container ships able to carry greater volume of cargo in standardized cargo container, the time spent in loading and discharging has been dramatically reduced. Where a general cargo vessel may take 3-4 days to load or discharge, a container ship can achieve the same in a matter of hours, although generally small in size, are not suitable for container, or operating on coast and inland waters.
 Bulk Carriers
Bulk carriers are the great work horses of the shipping world, carrying world, carrying raw dry cargoes such as coal, iron ore, grain, sulphur, scrap metal in their huge cavernous holds. All the time of writing this unit there is a huge demand for these vessels, driven by the extraordinary expansion of the Chinese economy. Recently imports of iron ore into China have boosted the earnings of bulk carrier owners.

The vessels in the top row are called geared bulk carriers, so called because they carry its own cargo cranes - very useful when visiting ports which do not have shore cargo handling equipment.

The vessels in the bottom row are gearless bulk carriers. These ships do not have its own cargo handling gear and hence dependent on shore side cargo loading and discharging equipment. They are normally much bigger in size than the geared bulk carriers.

Bulkers range from about 20,000 Deadweight tons (handy size) through the medium size (Panamax) vessels of up to 80,000 DWT, to the giant (cape size) vessels of over 200,000 DWT. Due to the role use that these vessels are put to, their life -expectancy is less than carrier accidents but the problem is now well under control.
