Documentary film essay about the world economy, particularly the globalisation of the production and trade, concentrates on the development of cargo transport by container. The makers visit large world ports. Appealing and at times harrowing images show the subsequent transport to the hinterland by truck, train and inland shipping and the consequences for sailors, dockworkers and the environment. Produced by Doc.Eye Film.
