Lloyd has just released it’s list of top 100 in shipping business. Find out who is sitting at #4 in that list.

Pirate #4

Okay let’s face it, a pirate from Somali has been ranked No.4 alongside a big shipping businessman and the most powerful man in shipping trade the Chinese minister of transportation, but that was expected.

The recently published Lloyd’s list ranking of 100 most successful people in shipping business is the list, which is most, respected in shipping trade. (Lloyd is considered as good as Oscar in show business or Nobel in other fields).

No one really knows the real name of this gun-totting pirate but he uses the moniker Garaad Mohammed, as per the sources. According to Lloyd’s list “Mohammed’s position is representative of the influence that pirates currently hold over the shipping industry”.

Incidentally the list has been released just a few weeks after the Somali pirates freed the British couple Paul and Rachel Chandler after being held for over a year.

By the way Chinese transport minister Li Shingling tops the list; in second place is chief executive of Maersk one of the biggest in shipping trade Nil Andersen and John Frederickson is placed third before our great pirate Mr. Mohammad.

    Interestng read. What baffles me is that Somalians in UK get so much help from government in UK (lots of money benefits). They give them housing priority over core british citizens… and what do they do?… take innocent british citizens as hostages in Somali and make their lives hell.

    I guess it all comes down to money…. :(

    That is very interesting. I am surprised that they consider being thieves a business. Exceptional reporting.

    That listing only glorifies the pirates, His name should be taken off the list.

    Wow, I would have never guessed this was the case. Surprising indeed. Also, picture of that little pirate (if they are not fishermen) boat made me laugh. Influencing transportation business from such a small boat must be tough :)

    Criminals still make a lot of money these days, especially in developing countries.
