In a world where the stability of global supply chains continues to suffer from uncertainty, the shipping industry has expanded its influence from what used to be a specialized, vertical field to more intuitive aspects of the lives of more ordinary people. Remember Ever Given and the tiny excavator beside it that blocked the Suez Canal in March 2021? Not to mention the roller coaster ride of shipping rates over the past 2 years, which has involved countless shippers, logisticians, traders, and millions of employed people and consumers at home and abroad. Recently, the World Cup came, the shipping containers even cross-border "kicked up the football"?

Stadium 974 - Qatar Shipping Container Stadium - FIFA 2022

The much-anticipated FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022™ will be played from 20 November to 18 December. This 2022 World Cup let us look forward to in addition to the exciting tournament, but also located in the capital of Qatar Doha's unique container stadium.

The 974 container stadium, consisting mainly of 974 shipping containers and a modular steel frame (+974 is also Qatar's international telephone area code), echoes Qatar's long nautical tradition and harmonizes with the stadium's location in the famous Doha Port on the Persian Gulf.

The idea for the stadium design came from the Spanish design studio of Fenwick Irivalen, and the concept was to create the first ever fully disassembled stadium for World Cup that would be green and energy efficient.

The construction of the stadium can be compared to the way of playing with Lego blocks, consisting of modular steel structures and colorful shipping containers, which are first built, then assembled to the appropriate location, and finally decorated and incorporated into other facilities. Simple container, functional areas but very simple, divided into food stores, offices, reception rooms, and so a variety of small rooms, very rich.

Movable, reusable, and freely disassembled, the modular structure of the 974 Stadium greatly reduces the construction materials and construction time of the stadium. At the same time, the massive modular structure will provide fans and players with a unique and memorable event atmosphere.

The shipping trade accounts for 80% of global trade and is a pivotal part of the global economy. The economic footprint necessarily goes hand in hand with the environmental footprint, with shipping accounting for approximately 3% of total carbon emissions in global greenhouse gas emissions. With the environmental pollution and carbon emission reduction in the maritime industry receiving great attention from the international community in recent years, as well as the promotion of the Paris Agreement, countries have updated their national voluntary contribution targets (NDCs) and committed to achieving carbon neutrality, the low-carbon environmental requirements, standards and norms of the maritime industry have been continuously improved, and the development trend of green, energy-saving, low-carbon and sustainable in the global maritime industry has become inevitable.

One year has passed since the most severe impact of COVID-19 on the maritime market, during which the rise in international maritime container freight rates has also driven container ship rentals up since June 2020 and continued to hit record highs. At the same time, the market also maintains a high demand for container ships. According to a report released by maritime research and advisory services firm Drewry, the number of global containers grew by 13 percent to nearly 50 million TEUs in 2021 alone, tripling the previous growth trend, but record ordering plans have been accompanied by the elimination of fewer aging units, and there are now up to 6 million TEUs of excess containers in the global equipment pool.


So how do abandoned containers, piles of ports and terminals, and port city congestion actually solve the problem?


Green Action

Thanks to the container is convenient enough, simple enough, creative enough and other characteristics, container building not only involved in residential, commercial areas and other fields, and is used in the transformation of public buildings. Compared with traditional building forms, the biggest advantage of the container building is relocatable. Local need to update the transformation, can be replaced with new boxes, need to move away when the demolition can be easily disassembled and rebuilt off-site as a whole, and the container has a global uniform standards, can achieve a global standardized design and construction, mature global container transport network and container mechanical connection to ensure that the container building can be constantly rebuilt off-site.

Nomadic museum is a very typical work, launched in March 2005 in New York, has visited many countries, the use of global standardization of the container to achieve sustainability. Each pavilion is made of the main 37 containers, plus the exhibition site to provide waste containers, locally sourced materials, and then built by staggered stacking, bringing a visual feast at the same time, greatly saving costs, increasing the speed, and minimize the damage to the environment.

Green Future

Similarly, there are container houses, shipping container cafe, container hotel and so on, all of which are the embodiment of the concept of sustainable development. Building scale is increasing, building difficulty is also increasing, the performance of the container in the building design is also constantly pushed new, which is the conservation of natural resources policy applied to all aspects of life feedback, I believe that in the future the container available for trading purposes will continue to expand.


Looking ahead, the development of social and economic changes, the same must be green, environmental protection, sustainable development of the original intention. The reuse, remanufacture and recycling of containers reflects the corresponding strategy of the development trend of building a conservation-oriented society of the shipping industry resources, and contributes to the sustainable development of the society.
