Any receptacle or enclosure for storing a product used in storage, packing, and transportation, including shipping, is referred to as a container. Things maintained within a container are safe because they are contained inside its framework. The phrase is most commonly used to describe devices composed of robust materials that are partially or entirely stiff.

A container is a fundamental tool that consists of any mechanism that creates a partially or completely enclosed compartment that may be used to contain, store, or transport things or materials.

Containers have been used by humans for at least 100,000 years, and maybe millions. The first containers were most likely created to store food, allowing early people to keep more of their food for longer periods of time, transport it more conveniently, and secure it from other animals.

The evolution of food storage containers was “very important to the evolution of human populations” and “a wholly novel behavior” not observed in other primates. The first containers were most likely natural things like hollow gourds, of which rudimentary specimens have been discovered in societies like the Tharu and native Hawaiians. Weaved baskets, carved wood, and ceramics were the next items on the list.

Following that, containers evolved in tandem with relevant improvements in human technology, as well as the development of new materials and manufacturing methods. The Phoenicians were the first to make glass bottles; examples of Phoenician translucent and clear glass bottles have been discovered in Cyprus and Rhodes, with lengths ranging from three to six inches.


It’s assumed that these Phoenician specimens from the first millennium BC were used to store perfume. The Romans acquired glass-making from the Phoenicians and manufactured several beautiful glass bottles, most of which were rather tiny. Retail containers such as glass bottles had become standardized for their markets by the beginning of the eighteenth century.

Philippe de Girard, a Frenchman, arrived to London in 1810 and utilized British trader Peter Durand as an agent to patent his own tin can-making technology. The canning concept was based on French inventor Nicholas Appert’s experimental food preservation work in glass vessels the year before.

Durand did not continue food canning, but sold his invention to two Englishmen, Bryan Donkin and John Hall, in 1812, who improved the technique and product and established the world’s first commercial canning business on Southwark Park Road in London. They began making tin tinned products for the Royal Navy in 1813.

Larger containers remained a problem for the transportation of goods on a larger scale, because customs officials inspecting imports had to contend with a lack of standardization in this field, as well as the fact that the predominantly wooden containers in use well into the twentieth century were prone to leaking or breaking. In the 1950s, the standardized steel shipping container was invented, and it rapidly became the norm for large-scale commercial commodities transportation.

The emergence of computer-aided design around the end of the twentieth century made it feasible to design extremely specialized containers and container groupings, as well as produce form-fitting labels for containers of unique forms.
