Episode 23 – Developing the ‘Smart’ Container

There are about 30 million shipping containers and 6,000 container ships around the world, but what about their safety and security. The programme reveals that UCC Cork and a Kerry company are devising a ‘smart’ container which can be tracked around the world. The programme also captures a special moment for an RNLI Coxswain as he describes how he followed his father and we discover the stories behind the sinking of HMS Wasp off Tory Island, County Donegal.  The MARITIME IRELAND RADIO SHOW has incisive and comprehensive coverage of maritime affairs in Ireland.
