Don't think this one has ever been posted. :-\ Obviously dated but really interesting to see the birth of intermodal.

It's a very interesting and informative video. The 60's saw the fast development of the container use. The Australian shipping
line Associated Steamships Ply. (ASP) introduced in 1964 the world first fully cellular purpose-built container ship named
M.V. Kooringa after a small South Australian town.

The shipping line was integrated under TNT umbrella as a subsidiary of TNT Bulkships in early 70's.

For its part, Seatrain International came under TNT umbrella when it was merged in 1978 with Trans Freight Lines (TFL) which
challenged, on the North Atlantiic route the Monopoly of the North Atlantic Conference which gathered all the private owned
shipping lines operatind on that route.

I know that I could sometime bother people with my numerous interventions involving TNT but the Group had deep roots in so
many transport fields and was so huge in the 70's and 80's, it was unavoidable.

Super cool, thank you for sharing. Documentation of "pre-ISO" containers seems to be scarce, so the quirky sizes are quite interesting to see in action
