How did this metal box change the way we live forever? Yes, forever. 

Years ago, believe it or not, shipping items was not that easy. Pilferage, theft and cargo MIA is common as the items are packed in loose cartons, bags, crates and barrels. Not only that, loading an unloading these cargo takes longer and costs more due to higher manpower cost. On Tuesday, April 26th 1956, Mr Malcolm Mclean, the owner of Pan-Atlantic Steamship Company and the Gulf Florida Terminal Company recognized, realizing the limitations and inefficiencies of the system, came out with the idea of shipping containers. Thus, a shipping revolution has begun. Nowadays, most items are shipped in this metal boxes. Not only that, but shipping containers has made its way to the construction and housing industry as well. Through container modification and container fabrication, these metal boxes could be changed into a workshop or accommodation easily.
