About me

I had the opportunity to start working with APL in September 2014.
Initially, I enjoyed a full year assignment with UK Operations in Docklands and then Stratford, London. I was introduced to the fundamentals of our business and during this period I gained two valuable assets: the understanding of what is physically possible in containerised shipping and good friends.

I am currently on my second year assignment, working as a Pricing Analyst for Europe-Asia Trade team in Uxbridge, London. I have the privilege to work for a position where strategic decisions need to be made while taking into consideration all the available commercial and operational information. My tasks are demanding, decisions have to be quick and accurate and the pressure is high.

However, working for the pricing team brings you as closer as possible to the shipping market reality and the team itself push you to enjoy every single aspect of each day's journey.

And at the end of the day you always have one thing to rely on: London!
