Step Inside The Box That Changed The World

Discover how the humble shipping container revolutionised the way we live in this free, outdoor exhibition housed entirely in six 20-foot shipping containers.

ContainerThe box that changed the world lifts the lid on the history of the cargo industry, the radical transformation of ports and port cities, the impact of containerisation on global trade and our oceans and innovations in container architecture.

The exhibition has been embraced by the industry and was made possible thanks to the generous support of sponsors and supporters.
