Meet the enormous boats that carry your stuff
This is the Empire State Building. With 102 floors, it's one of the tallest buildings in the US. But it's 4 floors shorter than the MSC Oscar. Which isn't a building, but a boat The largest container ship in the world. Launched in January 2015, the MSC Oscar is nearly the size of four football fields laid endtoend. It has a draft of 16 meters, which means that if you were to stand at the bottom of the ship, you'd be 5 stories underwater. It's one of 5000 container ships crossing the world's oceans, carrying the vast majority.
Of products you buy and the parts those products were made from. These ships are the engine of the global economy, but 60 years ago, they didn't even exist. How did all this happen For hundreds of years, shipping was a bit of a nightmare. Goods had to be unloaded into storage at ports, then individually packed onto ships and unpacked afterwards. This process was painfully slow and expensive, and it left items vulnerable to damage and theft. In 1956, Malcom McLean, an American trucking executive, proved that you could save time.
And money by loading truck containers directly onto ships. On the other side they'd be put back onto trucks or trains, and reach their destination without ever being opened. McLean later got the government on board by using containerized service to help the military provide supplies for the Vietnam War. Some of the more notable innovations in solving the logistical problems in Vietnam have been in the field of containerization After the industry recognized how efficient container shipping was, the use of container ships exploded. International standardization was the key. The unit of measurement is TEU, or twentyfoot.
Equivalent. Most containers used today are twice as long. Shippers quickly realized that the larger the boat, the cheaper the shipping price per container. So the size of the largest ships has grown exponentially. In 1999, a shipping executive predicted an eventual ceiling of 12,000 TEU. But the MSC Oscar has a capacity of over 19,000. To accommodate these huge ships, ports have been rebuilt, with vast yards to store the containers and huge cranes to load and unload them simultaneously, in a specific order. Today's biggest ships are so huge that they can't actually fit through the Panama canal.
Or dock at any American port. They're used mostly for shipping between Europe and Asia. It's hard to overstate how much all this has transformed the world economy. After containerization, global trade in merchandise soared while insurance costs and inventories decreased. Jobs at ports and in factories in the U.S. dropped while consumers gained access to a greater variety of products at a lower price. As a result, products we buy can be made with parts from several different countries, by people on the other side of the world. And it's hard to imagine any of this happening without someone first deciding to put the.
Top Secret Sales Tip 18 Burn the Boats The Best Sales Tip To Motivate Sales People
Hey guys, it's the Deej with another sales energizer tip of the week! Today's tip is slightly controversial and I don't know why it is. But when I told my wife she told me to be careful. Here's the thing. Everyone knows that story about I think it was Cortes when he discovered the New World. How he burned his ships behind him so that all the sailors and all the New World people can go and be motivated to take on their challenges. And they have to do because there is no way for.
Them to go back. Well, the challenges with us as sales people is that many of us are keeping stuff behind that we're using as almost a crutch to not really meet your potential. What I'm trying to say is every single successful sales person that you know, the big people, the one that is just knocking it out of the park. Those people never have a base salary! They work on total commission. Now a lot of people, when they're getting new jobs, they're always worried what's the base salary. The.
Base salary is exactly what's holding you back from reaching super stardom. Because you have that little in the back. So here's what I suggest you do. Try to change your compensation plan. And, yes, I said it! I know you've earned it. I know you've got all this stuff. Your compensation it's much better to get more commission and less base than more base and less commission. And if you can't change it, then try to live on only your commission and forget about that base. Just sock that away. That's just extra. Here's the.
Thing. And I know that it's a challenging thing to go by. You have to understand that your future is based on what you do today. Not on what you try to live off of, that security deposit in the back. Myself, I forfeit all government extras. No social security, no welfare, no benefits, no food stamps. No, nothing. No healthcare subsidies. I don't want any of that stuff. Because as soon as you take that drug, you're hooked forever. Your future and your future success is relying on you being your best today and every day! And you.
