A container (from Latin for continere "hold together", "contain") usually refers to large-capacity containers for the storage and transport of goods. The freight containers exist in various sizes and are usually standardized and/or standardized.
Already in the 18th century, wooden outer packaging boxes were used in England. These forerunners of today's containers allowed a faster transfer of goods from the railroad to horse transport.
