Who invented the Shipping Container?

Who invented the Shipping Container?

Malcolm Purcell McLean invented the Shipping Container that changed the world. Malcom was an American businessperson and transport entrepreneur who developed the modern container in the second half of the twentieth century. Now known as Containerization, Malcolm’s design significantly reduced the cost of freight transportation by eliminating the requirement for repeatedly handling individual pieces of cargo. The modern Shipping Container also improved reliability, reduced lost cargo to theft whilst cutting inventory costs by significantly reducing transit time. We tip our hat to you Malcolm.
