The Globalisation of the Oceans

This chapter analyses the first two stages of the process of containerisation. The first is the early impact of the industry on the domestic trades of the United States and of Australia. The second is the impact containerisation had on liner shipping and its expansion into North Atlantic, Transpacific (United States-Japan), and Australian trade routes. The chapter argues that these two factors, occuring during the 1950s and 1960s, provided a framework for the eventual dominance of containerisation on global shipping that occured during the 1970s. The chapter ends by detailing the readying of container terminals in all major ports, and the first Japan-Europe container voyage, the 1971 embarkment of the Kamakura Maru.
