Since its invention in the 1950's, the shipping container has reshaped manufacturing. It slashed transportation costs, making global trade possible and interconnecting the world's economy. Today, we at Little River Box Company create transformable spaces, giving another life to these containers by repurposing them into short-term and permanent installations. We think that the same shipping container that aided globalization can continue in the tradition of innovation and exchange. We see our containers playing an important part in creating commerce in communities and the local entrepreneurial ecosystem, creating new jobs and businesses in an enterprising and original way.
