Even before the pandemic, there was an imbalance (over 45 percent) of containers, caused in particular by empty containers stored in North America, according to Sea-Intelligence, a company providing market intelligence on global supply chain issues. This is partly due to the huge costs of building large container ships. There are also too many containers at sea terminals that clog ports and block the arrival of more cargo.
As a result, most ships were forced to re-route, adding new delays and costs and further restricting access to containers. It has also been a boon for the container shipping industry, which raises billions of dollars annually by moving raw materials, parts and finished products between factories before they are finally delivered to consumers. The fact remains, however, that the United States is awash with used containers that can be bought inexpensively with a little creativity and bargaining. Many readers expressed dissatisfaction with the high cost of even used containers.
