The container was invented by an American highway carrier in 1956 called Malcom McLean. He was born in 1913 and died in 2001 at the age of 87.
He invented the container because he found the transport of goods too long.

Malcom McLean and the containers


A container is a large box. On average it is 2 metres high and 5 metres long. These crates are used to store products, food, and ship them to other countries mainly by boat.

The container is made of steel and a wooden floor so that the products are not damaged during the journey.
