Today's Port of Boston has been virtually transformed since the stagnation of the immediate postwar years. The port's rebirth began in 1956, when an ineffective, locally-controlled port commission was replaced by the autonomous, self-supported, Massachusetts Port Authority (Massport). Massport immediately began the difficult job of buying up and rehabilitating abandoned or deteriorated property, updating rail and road links and, in general, preparing the port for changes in the world shipping industry.

That change really hit home in 1966, when Sea-Land pioneered the use of shipping "containers" in the trans-Atlantic trade (shipping containers are standardized 20 or 40 foot boxes which can be mounted on truck chassis or stacked up to eight high in the holds of ships). Massport's Castle Island Container Terminal was constructed for Sea-Land and became one of the first container terminals in the country.
