History of Containerization
Modern container shipping celebrated its 55th anniversary in 2011. Almost from the first voyage, Use of this transportation method increased considerably from the first voyage and in just five decades, containerships would able to move more than 60% of the value of goods.

This idea was not absolutely new and strange. The prototype of modern container had been used for rail- and horse-drawn transport in 1792. Small standard-sized containers during the Second World War were also used by the US government during the World War II.
In 1955, Malcom P. McLean, an entrepreneur from North Carolina, USA, bought a steamship company aiming to transport entire truck trailers with their cargo still inside.
The basis of this idea was the theory that efficiency could be perfected through a system of "intermodalism", in which the same container, can be transported with minimum interruption. Containers could be transported regularly between ships, trucks and trains, simplifying the whole logistical process.
