The document describes existing logistics practices with respect to empty containers, and considers the economic and institutional circumstances that direct the movement of empty containers within the SCAG region. Building on findings and recommendations presented in the recently concluded Gateway Cities Study, this work explores the regional problems posed by empty containers in the context of existing international trading structures and through discussions with international marine carriers. A key objective of this project is to understand the current logistics of empty containers related to the movement of cargo through the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach.
