About Me

I am Olga Brattekaas, the founder and idea generator of Shipcosts. A lot in our life happens by chance. In my case everything was about my first job. 13 years ago, I joined maritime world and never left it again. In fact, shipping industry has become something I am passionate about.

During my 13 years career, I have been at management positions for 8 years, gaining priceless experience in ship management, cost control and human resource leadership. The idea of “Shipcosts” was born thanks to painpoints our crewing team experienced while trying to balance between crew quality & safety and cost reduction, during last few years. In current market environment, no single maritime company would disregard the matter of continuous OPEX improvement.

While everyone agrees that it is the way to move on, the companies currently are at the different digitization stages.

Digitization will continue to change the shipping landscape and it is time for the industry players to acquire new skills and change the mindset to stay ahead of competition.
