Shipping of goods in any corner across the world has become possible with containers (ISO-Container = standardised large-capacity containers) and the multimodal transportation. With the improved transport chain for land and water, the growing network of ports with the hinterland and advancement in digitisation, the transport of containers shall be increasingly efficient and cost-effective.
The intermediate storage has been transferred partially via water route and on wheels. Sea containers can be transported without being repacked or unloaded by different modes of transport by land and via water routes. If necessary, they can be unloaded at suitable locations or stored temporarily and subsequently transported further.

They are cost-effective and affordable for everybody for sea transport as well as national transportation.
