Here in the US, many places with large logistics centers (warehouses, distribution centers, and the like) also have huge stacks of "orphaned" shipping containers. Goods were shipped into the US in these containers, but were left because the US imports far more than we export. They sit piled up because there "is no profit in moving an empty container."

We need a rule — one container in requires one container out, with exceptions for containers that find a permeant use, such as housing, storage units, machinery rooms, equipment sheds and the like. This will encourage reuse. World-wide, many small ports have a shortage of containers which limits their trade potential.
