Arrow Shipbroking has beefed up its dry bulk chartering desk with Bery Maritime's Stian Hallan.

The move is one of many similar shop jumps in Singapore made during the tight labour market caused by pandemic travel restrictions.

Hallan, who headed Bery Maritime's Singapore office as its managing director for the past eight years, revealed his career move in a LinkedIn post.

"I'm extremely pleased to announce that after three months of gardening leave (yes, some real gardening took place), I'm finally up and running with Arrow Shipbrokers in Singapore," he said.
