The Shipping Container

The Shipping Container is an infographic website on the topic of containerization. The website layout is focused on creating a storytelling narrative based on a flowchart.

The process of containerization is one of the main driving forces of globalization and international trade as we know them today. With the introduction of a uniformed and normed system of container transportation a century old problem for shipping had been solved and the basic condition for large-scaled world trade was initiated.

When was the last time you were driving behind a truck carrying a container? And didn’t you wonder: What is inside all of these containers? Anything you use, buy, consume—even the device you are using now—was part of a worldwide logistical network of intermodal transport. Containers carry a range of products from food and fresh produce to electronic equipment and paper. They have become part of our lives and culture. They are used and repurposed in many ways.
