The journey that goods make on container ships is something epic, they sail the oceans and, slowly but with determination, arrive at the ports of destination. It is the basis of our consumer society: goods shipped from China that we use every day, but we don’t care about their long journey to reach us. There are the ports of embarkation and then the ports where the containers are unloaded and inspected before being cleared through customs. In Italy this activity takes place on a daily basis, as its ports are geographically an important arrival point.
The maritime sector inspection is a job that takes place daily in the ports where goods travel on board containers, and ICS Project is a company that deals with this on a daily basis: check the goods, their condition, their quality and any damage. due to incorrect handling.
