Shipping Containers Re-Imagined   Leave a comment

The inter-modal container (shipping container) is a logistical product of international transport packaging.  At times, it is less expensive for companies to produce a new shipping container than to ship them back to countries like Asia for reuse.  Of course the answer to this quagmire is trade balance, but until then what?  So what do we do with an 8,000 pound box of steel?  Introducing shipping container architecture.
