About Gordon


+34 years experience

Gordon Collen profile img
Gordon is a highly experienced vessel movement analyst working within the sphere of vessel ownership, registration and vessel operations. He specialises in cargoes loaded and voyage times, and has a unique understanding of vessels’ characteristics and specifications.

Gordon is a specialist in what has become a complex field. With investment firms now taking a larger percentage of distressed shipping lines, it’s hard to get a real view of a vessel’s operations and ownership structure. And with the rise of “shell companies” Gordon’s skills are relied upon to identify the true owners of vessels.


He has been involved in analysing and eliminating any weaknesses in the Lloyd’s List Intelligence database, adding hugely to customer value. He was also responsible for introducing industry innovations such as MMSI numbers, engine types and the evolution of flags of convenience to the database.
