Following our previous post on barrels, here is our classic book suggestion, this time on the shipping container.
The Box: How the Shipping Container Made the World Smaller and the World Economy Bigger by Marc Levinson was published in 2006.
The book tells the great story Malcom McLean, who perfected the shipping container, the ever present, always colorful box that fill our ports, trains and highways. From a slow start, to global dominance, the book recounts how the box evolved and transformed the shipping industry. A great read for both the novice and the expert.
