Strong in its history

DSP wants to drive the new technological challenges and the digital transformation in its target markets

DSP was founded in 1986 by Dr. Angelo Ravano with the aim to support the top management of Contship Line in decision making, IT strategies and innovation.

Between 1986 and 1990 DSP developed a Shipping Information Systems as a real new world innovation, connecting in real time - thanks to virtual private network - all the branch offices in the world with the central office based in Ipswich (UK).

DSP became independent from the Contship Group in the 1990’s and is now owned by Angelo’s two sons: Enrico and Giambattista Ravano. Strong with almost 40-years of experience the DSP team is now composed of over 40 people who bring competencies from all over the world. We work with discretion and enthusiasm knowing that every idea in our organisation counts.
