How Brian Ladin Reinvented and Improved the Shipping Industry

Considering how long the shipping industry has been around for, it would be surprising to imagine that there is still potential for it to improve. Brian Ladin took a leap of faith and decided to create a shipping business that was able to fill the gaps within the industry. He began creating a company that would provide the shipping industry with asset leasing opportunities. In 2008 Brian founded Delos Shipping, a platform that lets you lease ships as well as a provider of maritime assets and financing for end users. As time passes and Brian is able to use his vision to secure many large transactions and acquisitions. 

Brian was first submerged in the shipping industry when he made a minor investment in shipping which led to him primarily investing in shipping. After some time he created an infrastructure for his business which would allow him to lease shipping assets to end users. This concept was new to the industry which would usually inspire fear and doubt, but Brian says that from the beginning he had no doubt that his idea would work and all it took was consistent hard work and persistence. 

In order to attract customers and create publicity, he presents his business at industry conferences and spends anywhere from 100-150 days a year on the road meeting with prospective clients. As a company they make sure that Delos can meet each customer’s requirements before they even start conducting business with them. This type of business is hypersensitive and rigorous, they must make sure that each client is financially stable enough to maintain a long term lease before agreeing to do business with them. They are a progressive business that finds new and better ways to manage vessels, they are now primarily focused on sale leaseback opportunities. As for the future of Delos Shipping, Brian plans to increase their portfolio of sale leasebacks diversified by many different vessel types, such as tankers, dry bulk, cruise and containers. He also mentions that, ship leasing will be very focused on the next generation of environmentally friendly vessels for the next 10-20 years, Owners and lessors will be focused on dual fuel vessels, vessels that are energy efficient and burn low carbon footprint fuels.The vision that Brian has for Delos Shipping is ambitious but he knows that by being as productive everyday as possible, never letting any setbacks slow him down, and using his resources to keep him organized and educated he will be able to reach all the goals that he has created for himself. Brian can assure anyone who is trying to get their ideas off the ground that all they need is hard work and dedication to turn their ideas into a reality. That is the way that he was able to turn his ideas into Delos Shipping.
