Abstract

From 1991 to 1993, eleven countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom) and the European Community carried out an inventory of ISO general cargo containers, then evaluated the impact of increasing the dimensions of these containers on the economy, the environment, infrastructure and safety. This report has allowed the Europeans to explain successfully in the international competent organisations, the damaging consequences of increasing the dimensions of containers.
