Forklift mishap destroys $1m of shiraz wine

The birth of containerized logistics is partly owed to the fact that shipments were damaged during transport. However, there were certain shipments that had a higher incidence of damage than the rest. For instance, alcohol often ended up lost when bottles broke during shipments. No one really new if the ship's crew helped themselves to some fine while being on sea for weeks. Containerization put an end to this until a forklift destroyed $1m of fine wine.
