Before the introduction of shopping containers in the transport industry products were transported by bales, barrels, crates and sacks which were not cost-effective nor time-efficient.
The first patent for a standardised container that could be transported by ship was done in 1956 – only 66 years ago. These containers are durable, stackable and can be loaded and offloaded using cranes, side lifters and reach stackers which streamline the process of transporting goods from trains and trucks to shipping vessels.
Containers can move cargo across land, sea and air, making this one of the easiest modes of cargo transportation. Since the widespread use of shipping containers for moving goods the efficiency of shipping has improved and costs have been drastically reduced.
