Transporting cargo safely from one place to another is a top priority for all shipping companies. This is why they use industry-standard containerization resources in order to accomplish this task. Fortunately, there are rules and regulations that are put into place that ensures that the shipping industry is safe for individuals of all backgrounds. Let’s take a closer look at how containerization started, an in-depth look at it, and what we can expect to see…
Transporting shipping containers across long distances on land and sea was always a challenge in itself.
The containerization process brought light to the industry, intermodal containers being loaded, unloaded, stacked fast, and transported efficiently, even though they were being moved across vast distances.
Today we’re going to speak about the unit measures that somehow came naturally with the development of international trading: introducing TEU(twenty-foot equivalent unit) and its counterpart, FEU, two unusual units of measure that revolutionized the cargo industry.
Have you ever wondered how long it takes to boil water?
First of all, you need to understand that the word “boiling” in this aspect refers to the bringing of a quantity of water to the point or temperature at which it starts to transform from liquid to gas.
A lot can affect the time it takes for H2O to boil and this includes:
- The temperature of the water, pot, and stove
- The salinity of the H2O composition
- Surface area
- The volume of the pot
- Whether a lid is in place or not
There are, however, a few other factors that also affect the time or how long it takes for water to reach its boiling point.
