Day in and day out thousands and thousands of shipping containers arrive and depart from ports around the globe. Shipping containers in Australia, UK, the US and everywhere else in the world are transported on liner ships which travel along regularly scheduled routes. Each shipment represents a particular supply chain – from consumables to electronics, textiles and more. Whether the goods are furniture from Bali or sneakers from China being sent to Africa, each supply chain is really unique since involves accurate and timely transfer of the items between a variety of transport modes.
Typically, goods that are transported aboard a liner ship are packed into the shipping container at the factory of production. The container can be locked and sealed on site and only opened once it reaches its destination, meaning the goods remain safe and secure during their journey.
It’s because of the convenience and safety of this method of transportation that more than 50% of the world’s goods that are moved internationally are done so in shipping containers.
Here’s what the process involves.
Finally the truck will arrive at the import distribution centre close to the port. It is here that the container is opened and all the orders by individual retailers are sorted out, separated and then prepared for distribution. The next day the clothing store will receive its 1000 t-shirts ready for the shelves.
