Porter is to oversee the quality and focus of Containerisation International and the new Lloyd’s List Intelligence Containers Channel, while maintaining her duties at Lloyd’s List.

Sarah Bennett has joined as analyst of Lloyd’s List Intelligence Containers Channel after graduating from London’s School of Oriental and African Studies with a master's in economics on the Asia Pacific region.
