"It's unwise to pay too much, but it's worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money - that's all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot - it can't be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better." -  John Ruskin 1819-1900

Photo of the Week 72: Maiden Voyage of the African Rook

Empire Shipping had the honor of co-sponsoring a luncheon on board the African Rook, a new vessel owned by MUR Shipping. This vessel is one of the first in a series of new-builds for MUR. Present at the commemoration were NOADAN Chartering, Timberwest and various Terminal and Port Representatives. Empire Shipping's Bruce Rothdram presented a carving to the Master to commemorate the call. The event took place in Vancouver Canada.
