Prototype History:
The 40 foot container is the king of the container business. It is the most common standard container size used for international and domestic shipping. Most intermodal operations that handle overseas shipping are optimized for this container size. These containers are typically reinforced for loading, unloading and transportation by ship.

Dry containers are meant for non-refrigerated goods and hence are the most common type.

Road Name History:
Yang Ming Marine Transport Corporation (Yang Ming) was established on December 28, 1972. This is an ocean shipping company based in Keelung, Taiwan (ROC). This shipping line was founded in 1972, but has historical links through its merger with the China Merchants Steam Navigation Company, which dates back to the Qing Dynasty (1872–1995). The Yang Ming Group includes a logistics unit (Yes Logistics Corp. and Jing Ming Transport Co.), container terminals in Taiwan, Belgium, Netherlands and the USA, as well as stevedoring services (Port of Kaohsiung, Taiwan). Yang Ming's service scope covers over 70 nations with more than 170 service points.

About the company name and logo
Literal meaning: "Yang Ming" is transliterated from its two Chinese characters "陽明. "Yang Ming" refers to the sun and lightness. "Yang" refers to the sun, whereas "Ming" is the combination of the sun and the moon and often denotes "brightness," "clarity" or "enlightenment."

Logo Meaning: The logo is a square block shape integrated with our initials "YM". The "Y" stretches out from the bottom to the top, which signifies Yang Ming's endeavor for innovation. The "M" stands for grandeur, width and firmness, which implies that Yang Ming's employee teams work honestly and pragmatically for effective results. The Yang Ming logo also delivers Yang Ming's core values of "Teamwork, Innovation, Honesty and Pragmatism."

About the company colors

The Grey color stands for Yang Ming's core values.
Teamwork-oriented: Grey is the mixture of black and white. It means successful work is done by the coordination and communication of mutual parties. Innovative: Grey has the feeling of modern life and technology, which meet the spirit of innovation.
Honest and Pragmatic: Grey is a neutral color, not shining but also not so ignorable. Grey is a reliable color that embodies the pragmatic goals of doing the job right the first time.

Brand/Importer Information:
Con-Cor has been in business since 1962. Many things have changed over time as originally they were a complete manufacturing operation in the USA and at one time had upwards of 45 employees. They not only designed the models,but they also built their own molds, did injection molding, painting, printing and packaging on their models.

Currently, most of their manufacturing has been moved overseas and now they import 90% of their products as totally finished goods, or in finished components. They only do some incidental manufacturing today within the USA.

Important Note: The Con-Cor product numbering can be very confusing. Please see here in the article how to properly enter Con-Cor stock numbers in the TroveStar database.
