The container functions as a symbol for globalization and freedom of transport, while the people who make the products shipped in these containers are often not allowed to travel anywhere.

A man in suit approached me: "I have never been in a container before, while every container here has been through my hands". He was a sales manager for the container company that sponsored the containers we were working with. He preferred other methods of traveling. "These ships are magnificent to look at, but I don't like being on board."
