Yeah but most of those crates are bigger than a people.
Prepare to be amazed…they can be reused over and over again. OMG, right?
That is not true.
The article says that _in 2012_ there were _about 20.5 million intermodal containers_.
There are shipping crates that are not intermodal containers and there’s probably a lot of them. The number might have changed quite a bit in the last ten years, too.
They make 3-5 turns a year. Some are 20’ in length and others are either 40’ or 45’ long. Some containers are a foot taller than the standard height containers. There are lots of variables to take into account and I really do not know the real point of your post.
Trying to keep me separated from my family 😆
Umm… What world are you living in? Billions supply themselves.
Edit; clarity. Simple first second and third world structure.
I’m no industry expert but my intuition tells me that the availability of big metal boxes is unlikely to become a limiting factor in shipping 😛
(+ That number seems to be over 10 years old – i’d expect it to have grown quite a bit since then)
