Overview

The next time you sit down with a cup of coffee, check your phone for new messages, and start to work on your laptop, consider the journey they all made to reach you. There's a good chance that they spent some time inside of a shipping container.

We've all seen shipping containers before, whether we've consciously registered them or not. They're those colorful containers that we see on trains, trucks, and ships. It's even become something of a trend to repurpose and retrofit them to become modern living spaces.

In Marc Levison's book, The Box: How the Shipping Container Made the World Smaller and the World Economy Bigger, you'll see how the slow and costly process of shipping was transformed into an industry with an impact reaching far beyond the world of simply moving goods.
