The History of the Shipping Container
CONEX containers are one of the most iconic developments in the history of transportation and logistics, as they revolutionized the shipping industry.
The term CONEX is an abbreviation of Container Express, indicating that transport times were cut short by having a single container compatible with multiple means of transport. During the wars in Korea and Vietnam, US troops needed quick methods of ferrying supplies to the soldiers at the front lines.
A unique design known as the CONEX box was developed to overcome this. This box was compatible with the trailers on which they could be carried.
In addition, they had locking mechanisms that could connect adjacent boxes to prevent toppling over during transport. The first model of these intermodal containers was the “Transporter” used in deployment during World War II to ferry supplies to the war front.
The basic design had a 4,000 kg weight limit and was made of corrugated steel to serve as protection.
During the Korean war, containers were modified to store larger quantities of goods without compromising structural integrity. The Vietnam war witnessed larger CONEX boxes being developed that could double up as living quarters during harsh conditions.
