How shipping containers are made

This is a promotional video done for the Canadian company Big Steel Box who makes, leases and sells shipping containers for a variety of uses: moving and storage and modular construction.

The music isn’t great in this video and there are a few too many “art shots” but you can get a good sense of the process which is the appeal for me.

Shipping containers, also called intermodal containers (ship, truck, train) were developed as part of a larger system called intermodal shipping. The history on the wikipedia page is worth reading, fascinating.
