      CONTAINERS

In 1950’ shipping goods via container was introduced as an alternative to general loose cargo handling (refer to as break –bulk shipping). Since then, container shipping has become the preferred way to ship merchandise internationally, displacing break-bulk shipping in all but the largest of cargo.

It also the cargo to move from in-land point of origin in one Continent to in-land point of destination in another continent, Without the need to handle the cargo itself the sealed container seamlessly moves between multiple modes of transportation (“intermodal” shipment),

 
 

from the back of the truck chasis, onto a specially build container ship, and back again on top of a truck, rail or barge, as the case maybe.

Container shipping utilizes standard size containers. This standardization of capacity carrying units has introduced efficiency into the management of shipping, warehousing and general distribution. Container shipping provided greater security from theft of cargo and improved protection from breakage by avoiding the manual handling that took place during break-bulk shipments.

Today, almost all finished and semi-finished goods are shipped internationally within containers, including: chemicals, food products, wood/paper products, metals, minerals, plastics, machinery and various manufactured products, textile, vehicles, medical equipment and etc.

The dramatic growth in the container shipping industry is attributed to the improved efficiencies and lower cost of transport; opening borders and allowing manufactures around the world to be competitive in foreign markets. source : Navtag Technologies LLC ( Business Plan )

While the advent of containerization provided a simplified method of shipping goods internationally, the complexity of multimodal transport still requires a coordinated process of communication between the various service providers involved. Containerization allows goods to be transported from origin to destination in a single medium but requires the participation of as many as 10 different service providers to complete this task.
