The BBC Box returns to the U.K.

"The BBC Box", NYKU8210506 ends it's journey.

From The BBC

The Box has now arrived back in Southampton, just over a year after it left last September.

Since then, the global economy stopped growing for the first time in 60 years, with poor countries particularly severely hit.

Global trade sank like a stone, for periods at least taking our Box with it.

From April until July it sat forlornly (if containers can be forlorn) in Yokohama.

It was just one tiny part of the statistic that the container business made a collective profit of £3bn in 2008, but is estimated to have lost a cool £20bn in 2009.
