The story: an innovative solution to the problems of a stagnant industry
iContainers was created by Carlos and Iván, two young men who worked in a family-owned customs agency, after losing a customer as a result of not being able to provide several instant quotes at the end of 2007. This is a common problem in the world of freight forwarding.
They wondered why technology had automated booking the transport of passengers but not goods. And in 2008 iContainers was founded with a clear mission: to bring international trade to any company, regardless of its importing or exporting experience, size or geographical location.
