The man who changed international transportation and made it much more agile and secure.

His name is Malcolm McLean, and his invention changed the course of world trade and globalization: container shipping.

In the 1950s, shipping was claiming the lives of longshoremen every few weeks until 1956, when McLean successfully launched the first commercial container voyage from New York to New Jersey. He was convinced of the potential of containers and so he fought to implement it.

His idea made him a millionaire as he revolutionized the transportation system.

What would international trade have been without the container?
