An organization founded in the late 1940’s and headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland. Through the participation of its members, it establishes many world standards; for example, ISO 9002 as a business practice. In the intermodal area, the ISO is best known for establishing in the mid 1960’s the standard for the size of a container, including all its components, such as the specifications for the corner casting. This reversed the situation where, by the time there were 20,000 containers worldwide in 1965, there were 11 different sizes. The resulting uniformity coordinated and established by the ISO permitted the evolution from containerization to intermodalism.
