The Evolution of Containerships

The first generation of containerships was composed of modified bulk vessels or tankers that could transport up to 1,000 TEUs. The first containership, the “Ideal-X” was a converted World War II T2 tanker. At the beginning of the 1960s, the container was a transport technology being tested and gradually deployed, and reconverting existing ships proved to be of lower costs and less risky.

INDUMAR – New member in Mexico

INDUMAR was established in the port of Veracruz Mexico in 1997 as a family business and still remains the same. During our initial days, we supplied only nautical charts and publications as well as navigational instruments. However, given the maritime market needs for service and products in Mexico, we acquired dealerships and service representations until we became the company that we are today.
