Containerization was the first step in a globally standardized physical distribution system. It precipitated a system of intermodal unit loads and modular packaging dimensions known as “Total Pack.” As part of this system, reasons are presented why the air-cargo mode should adopt an intermodal unit-load 54.00 × 45.00 in (1372 × 1143 mm).
