Now it's a world where you can buy products from all over the world with only one smartphone. There is no doubt that the Internet made it possible, but without the development of a logistics system, it would never happen that goods from all over the world arrive at hand. The logistics of shipping has been said to have begun with the Phoenicians who were active in the Mediterranean trade in the 12th century BC. The history of the world economy is also the history of international logistics development. The Netherlands in the 17th century, the UK which developed the industrial revolution in the 19th century. Both brought to innovation in logistics which contributed to the breakthrough development of the economy. In the 20th century, the emergence of containers seamlessly connected the logistics of overland and sea paths, which had a major impact on the supply chain of manufacturing industry and our life as a consumer.
