Our Services


Small quantities of goods with peculiar characteristics. They can be small batches which will be followed by an important order. Completion of a supply. Orders that do not justify the usage of a full container. These goods can be shipped anywhere, protected by the container that will host them in any event. These are the so-called LCL shipments, Less than Container Loaded. This service is also offered by C.I.


Since the late 1970s, C.I. has been working with major shipping companies. We have seen their improvements, growth, evolution and epochal changes. We have participated, with our work and with the goods managed by our company, to this transformation. Today we perfectly know the services and the terms of yield (o terms of performance).

We know how to manage them.


All those in the world who have made it possible for projects deemed unrealistic to be built, those societies that have built dams, ports, skyscrapers that reach the clouds: all these contractors are familiar with what it means to move around the world equipment and machines that allow the realization of impossible projects. Managing road, vehicles, ships or barges is simply not enough: experience, knowledge of the country and its local rules, ability to travel without damaging the material and at the same time safeguarding the environment: That's what makes the difference. I repeat the concept: lots of experience, professional preparation and sometimes even a little bit of fantasy.

We have been working in the contractors sector for 40 years, especially in Africa.


Anything that 'travels' by air is a special expedition and it costs high amounts of money. Precisely because of this, goods as samples collections, spare parts necessary for the operation of high-value machines delicate goods or of great intrinsic value, they all arrive at their destination through a dense network of correspondents, agents, C.I. branches.


Do you know how to wrap up a package of IMO Classed goods, or the danger of loading a paint solvent? Are you aware of how treacherous is compressed and liquefied gas - such as simple hairspray - or lithium batteries? Did you know the risk of storing heedlessly certain products in the same container, when the risk of their possible contact could produce firedamp gas? Or that barbecue charcoal, if it gets wet, could generate an explosive gas? We have handled similar cases thousands of times and therefore, we know very well the procedures that must be respected via land, sea or sky.


After many years of work, we can argue with confidence that the easiest type of goods to embark on a ship is any object that is provided with rubber tires, or rubber and steel tracks, or that moves on a simple roller. Among these, trucks, cars, construction machines and everything able to board the ship alone, pushed or guided. It's Roll on / Roll off traffic. Ships as the so-called Ro/Ro or the Car Carriers are simple examples of ships that are used daily for construction work or for the supply of road vehicles that are seen constantly around cities. Our shipowners continuously implement dozens and dozens of these special ships.
