Welcome! to Container Transportation where you can find, discuss, and share knowledge and information about shipping as well as logistics industry.
"The Shipping Container Made the World Smaller and the World Economy Bigger"
You know, that cubic box really changed the world in a time that people call containerisation age.
Following the movement, I create this website to describe the details of the trend and to help people working in the process to gain more progress.
In this website, I detail contents in a sequence from specific to general levels:
Introduction about freight container: with specific article about sizes, type, marks, etc. on the shipping boxes.
Articles about shipping containers, from history to other perspectives
Information about companies owning and operating container vessel fleets: shipping lines
Container ports/terminals, where container ships call at to load and discharge cargo;
The process of container shipping happening in practice, to move cargo globally;
Sale of containers, new and refurbished;
Useful Shipping Tools
Besides above profession contents, this site dedicates a part talking about useful tools commonly used in shipping industry.
As you may know, shipping indices tell the health of the industry, and to some extent, of the economy as a whole. I’m talking about Baltic Dry Index (BDI), Charter rate and Freight rate indices in this website.
Other tools that practioners may need in their daily jobs include: IMDG Code (for dangerous cargo), country code, and shipping terms. They’re all here for your ready reference.
Some may interested in formal learning and reading. So a collection of professional books may help.
Just visit my mini shipping store. You will find there great books about containers, and all relating stuff including nice gifts about the shipping receptacle.
I also add a part of little relaxation and refreshment to make somewhat-tedious profession more interesting. I collected some exciting (or a little scared) video clips for your enjoyment.
What's more, I also write about a great innovative idea about building with used shipping containers. Talented architects recycle refurbished shipping material to make great building projects.
Have you ever imagined to work or live in an office or house made by steel containers? If you haven’t, read the article Container Homes, you may give it a second thought.
This website contains information, knowledge, and experience I’ve learned and practiced over the years in the field of container transportation. I hope you will find it useful and interesting.
