Today’s postindustrial economies are marked by a heavily declined manufacturing sector. 90% of everything we consume comes from overseas; the sea freight industry controls 95% of all products shipped on the planet. What is the real price of shipping? Who are the key players of this global industry? And overall, what is its impact on our lives and on the environment?
FREIGHTENED takes us behind the scenes to reveal the mechanics and perils of an all-but-visible industry that holds the key to
our economy and the very model of our civilization.
