A Brief History of Freight Shipping
The process of moving goods by land and sea goes back for centuries. Even one of the most well-known birth stories of the United States, The Boston Tea Party, was an attack on a fleet of cargo ships.
As populations grew and the industrial revolution kicked in full force, the amount of goods needing to be transported increased at an exponential rate. Modern cargo ships are capable of carrying several thousand tons of goods from one country to another.
The amount of products being moved at any given time is so vast freight companies have to use specialized software, like the kind made by TATEMS, just to keep track of it all!
