TCT Shipbrokers, the shipbroking joint venture between Transport Capital and Toepfer Transport, has beefed up its Singapore-based shipbroking team by recruiting Cosco Shipping Specialized Carriers (Southeast Asia)’s chartering manager Bernard Foo.

Foo’s appointment comes as TCT, which has primarily focused on the container sector, expands into tankers and dry bulk.

TCT general manager Richard Wetzki said he was “excited” to expand the team with the hiring of Foo, who brings close to 20 years of experience in the shipping industry including commercial and operational experience in both vessel and cargo segments, engaging in chartering, vessel operations, sale-and-purchase, and port management.
