we push boundaries
we reach our destination by working as one crew.
Voyages by ship are legally classed as adventures. Intelligent Cargo Systems is our adventure; driven by passionate problem solvers who are resilient when faced with a storm.
Chris Jones spent twelve years at sea as a second officer before co-founding Intelligent Cargo Systems. Frustrated by the lack of data readily available to crew and the logistical problems this created, Chris taught himself to code and created CargoMate whilst at sea.
Dennis Sandmark spent six years as a full-stack software engineer prior to meeting Chris and co-founding Intelligent Cargo Systems. Frustrated by corporate life, Dennis wanted to create a company that valued people, expertise, ideas and challenging the status quo.
Chris is known for his ‘interesting’ taste in trainers, endless patience and generally being a container geek. Dennis is slightly obsessed with coffee and firmly believes in afternoon walks in the park with only the occasional stop at the ice cream parlour.
