Ports are handling most of their cargo through containers. The standard container is the TEU (“twenty-foot equivalent unit”). There are currently approximately 7 million “active” TEUs around the world. About 2.3 million TEUs are on board a ship somewhere on the world’s oceans in-transit between ports. The other 4.7 million TEUs are on land (in port being unloaded, or reloaded, or at warehouses around the world). There are, however, many other materials that are handled in many other ways. These materials are called “cargo” and include fluids (oil, gasoline, orange juice, etc), solids (cement, mineral ores, etc).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
