November 14, 2018

Globalization owes a lot to the humble shipping container.In the distant past, loading a ship was a complicated affair involving pallets, crates, and winches. This process was labor-intensive and expensive, meaning most goods were simply not worth shipping overseas.In the 1970s, the standardized shipping container solved this problem on a wide scale and turned the world economy on its head.
