SS Ideal X, a converted World War II T-2 oil tanker, was the first commercially successful container ship.

Built by The Marinship Corporation during World War II as Potrero Hills, she was later purchased by Malcom McLean's Pan-Atlantic Steamship Company.In 1955, the ship was modified to carry shipping containers and rechristened Ideal X. During her first voyage in her new configuration, on April 26, 1956,the Ideal X carried 58 containers from Port Newark, New Jersey, to Port of Houston, Texas, where 58 trucks were waiting to be loaded with the containers.

@ canberra97:
I don`t know why you name Cie. Maritime Belge as being "quite the pioneers in northern Europe in the carriage of containers in the mid to late seventies"?
Instead of carrying containers on general cargo ships some top European shipping firms were already operating full container vessels as early as 1968, for example this one besides quite a few others:

Cie. Maritime Belge were quite the pioneers in northern Europe in the carriage of container's in the mid to late seventies. Their vessel the REUBENS was the first vessel to use the container terminal at the Port of Southampton when it opened in 1968. Cie. Maritime Belge went on to be one of the founding company's of the Dart Container Line.
