Containerization Anniversary

26 April 2012, 17:11 / SeaNews / Rating: 339

April 26, 1956 the first container shipment took place as 58 containers were loaded on board the ship “Ideal X”, which sailed from Newark to Houston. The first container vessel was actually built as tanker and later converted to carry containers and trailers.

No surprise, as the container era pioneer Malcom McLean had a trucking business before venturing into shipping. He bought Pan-American Steamship Company renaming it SeaLand and turned it into a major container line. In 1999, SeaLand was acquired by Maersk.
