During World War II, standard sized shipping containers were developed to ship military cargo to the front lines across the world. These boxes were called “Transporters.” The term “conex” came from the development of Transporters into Container Express or CONEX boxes after the Korean War. The logistics method employing these was named "Container Express" and was abbreviated ConEx. That abbreviation evolved into a word used universally and has since been abbreviated conex box. Sometimes the term is also used from its origin and spelled connex box, but most logisitcs professionals use conex.
The conex container box itself has evolved into many different and unique uses, such as, extra covered storage, mobile workshops, shelters, living spaces, parts depot, and more.
