Economics INSIDE the Box: Understanding the global containership industry

Hanjin Africa cargo ship 2012

Roughly 90% of all international trade travels by sea at some point in the supply chain, primarily via container ships. From their introduction in the 1950s, container ships grew from converted tankers holding 800 containers to massive vessels such as the M/V Ever Given capable of carrying over 20,000 containers. Why and how these ships evolved, and the unique structure of the modern international shipping market that facilitated it, is the story of both the rise and the limits of contemporary maritime logistics. Join Dr. Eric Schuck of the Linfield economics department in discussing the role of containerized shipping in the global economy.
