This chapter follows the expansion of the container industry throughout the 1970s, into a fully worldwide system. The success of containerising cargo liners propelled the industry forward at a rate nobody in the field could accurately predict. It charts the histories and growth of established container companies, plus the surge in establishment of new companies to meet the industry’s needs and to establish ‘national carriers’ to meet the desires of each maritime nation. It examines statistics pertinent to the industry, such as market shares, trade group membership details, and the dates of container shipping introduction across major routes. Of particular interest is the activities of the influenctial TRIO group (Britain-Germany-Japan) in relation to the industry’s expansion
