Container is a kind of a large metal box for transport and storage of various commodities. The first cargo containers were in use at the beginning of the 20th century. Since the middle of the last century container shipping has been a popular means of the international trade in goods. Big boxes started to be placed on board of specially designed ships, the so-called container ships, as well as on the container trains and trucks. The importance of containers in modern logistics is invaluable – they not only facilitate the transport of goods, but also ensure their safety and facilitate unloading and reloading.
