But the container didn t just happen Its adoption required huge sums of money, both from private investors and from ports that aspired to be on the leading edge of a new technology It required years of high stakes bargaining with two of the titans of organized labor, Harry Bridges and Teddy Gleason, as well as delicate negotiations on standards that made it possible for almost any container to travel on any truck or train or ship Ultimately, it took McLean s success in supplying U.S forces in Vietnam to persuade the world of the container s potential. Drawing on previously neglected sources, economist Marc Levinson shows how the container transformed economic geography, devastating traditional ports such as New York and London and fueling the growth of previously obscure ones, such as Oakland By making shipping so cheap that industry could locate factories far from its customers, the container paved the way for Asia to become the world s workshop and brought consumers a previously unimaginable variety of low cost products from around the globe. Published in hardcover on the fiftieth anniversary of the first container voyage, this is the first comprehensive history of the shipping container Now with a new chapter, The Box tells the dramatic story of how the drive and imagination of an iconoclastic entrepreneur turned containerization from an impractical idea into a phenomenon that transformed economic geography, slashed transportation costs, and made the boom in global trade possible.
