Review of Modern Transportation Technologies with focus on Containerization

Modern transportation technologies emerged in the mid-20th century and their appearance changed the current course of the transportation of goods. The use of modern transportation technologies in transport processes results in faster, more efficient and safer transport of goods from the sender/consignor, the manufacturer, to the receiver/consignee, consumer or customer. Container, i.e. containerization is one of the most important transportation technologies with significant impact on the development of international trade and globalization from the 1960s until present time. The aim of this paper is to review the role of containerization, as the most significant transportation technology. The results show an ever growing yet slower trend of containerization during past years that is likely to continue in the upcoming period . In the future, challenges can be expected in the container business especially in the field of digitalization and automation. This paper contributes to the valorization of containerization and points to the important role of infrastructure as a support to the realization of the potential of containerization in future.
