My name is Julia Louppova and I am the author of port.today.

A shipping professional with 17 years of experience in container transportation, I possess deep knowledge of container port market, main players and actual tendencies.  My career in shipping began in P&O Nedlloyd, an Anglo-Dutch container line, renowned for its rich history of over 150 years, united global team and excellent customer service.

After the takeover of PONL by Maersk in 2005, I soon joined FESCO, the Russian transportation group, where started a new path, as a ports and terminals specialist.

From then on, ports have become my passion.

On top of the practical experience I obtained a theoretical knowledge of container shipping by studying at the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers (certified as MICS) and of the port industry by completing the Port Management course with Lloyd’s Maritime Academy.
