While there was a shortage of containers at the height of the pandemic, the global economy is now facing the opposite problem: too many containers.

It points to more signs of falling global demand and an impending economic slowdown. https://www.shippingtribune.com/news/shipping/The+global+shipping+industry+is+facing+a+new+problem+%E2%80%94+too+many+containers
