    Starting a shipping business

    okiteo Newbie
      Hi All,

      I want to start container shipping business from Calgary to Africa and Middle East. I am seeking for information on how to start and things I should prepare before starting. I'll appreciate any information from any one. A couple of questions I'll like an answer to:
      a) What is the easiest way to get a loaded container from Calgary to the nearest sea port? Which port is the cheapest from Calgary to Africa and the Middle East?
      b) Are there any licenses required?
      c) What is the cost of the container transportation from Calgary to the nearest port and from the port to Africa?
      d) What are the main equipment and tools required?
      e) Are there any special training or experience required?
      f) Any other information that may be of assistance.
