This chapter details the introduction of containerism to the shipping industry and the tremendous effect of rapid technological change that it brought about within the industry and the running of ports. It documents the disputes over the use of new cargo-handling equipment and the subsequent nationwide agreement to accomodate container ships at New Zealand ports. The conclusion demonstrates that though watersiders managed to secure favourable terms during the process, the terms were inherently unsustainable and counter-productive to the efficiency, and lower labour requirements, of the container industry.

Keywords:   Containerisation, Container Terminals Agreement, Watersiders, Waterfront Industry Act 1953, Modern Maritime Technology
