Interesting reading (seriously) on freight, shipping, supply chains, and logistics.

Listed below is a sample of titles that relate to containers and freight shipping. All are available through the Sawyer Library.

The "Handbook of Ocean Container Transport Logistics" is a scholarly reference book, but the others (especially the three print titles) are interesting and relatively quick to read in their entirety.

All of the titles should awaken respect for those who work to transport the items that are at the center of the consumer economy.
