History of shipping containers
Shipping containers were invented in the 1956 to make trade much easier through the seas. The idea came from Malcom P. McLean, he thought that it would be more efficient to carry a truck overseas with the cargo than offload it into separate crates. They were made to be space efficient. and increase the size of cargo hold overseas
The world see shipping containers in giant cargo boats.They are stacked on top of each other and are restrained so they don't fall off, they restrain them with cables and build a structure around them in case the cables break. After they move them across the ocean they load them in trucks and they head to their destination.The main purpose of the shipping container is to carry cargo across the oceans more efficiently since it can carry more than normal container.
