We here at EES love a good book dedicated to the world of shipping. We’ve got a few of these babies on our shelf and thought we’d share what we are reading with you.
Here are 5 of our favourite shipping books.
1. The Box: How the Shipping Container Made the World Smaller and the World Economy Bigger. Buy this book.
2. Uncommon Carriers – This is a book about people who drive trucks, captain ships, pilot towboats, drive coal trains, and carry lobsters through the air: people who work in freight transportation. A great read. Get a copy here.
3. Box Boats – How container ships changed the world. Buy a copy.
We’ve saved two of our favourites till last…
4. A Captains Duty – This tale is the inspiration for the movie Captain Phillips. Buy a copy today – it’s an amazing story.
What’s a post without a mention of our favourite thing to do with a used shipping container – container homes! Want to build one? Check this book out.
5. Introduction to Container Homes and Buildings –
Because “Building with Shipping Containers means tiny spaces .. NOT.” Head over here to get your hands on this one.
