Continuing the conversation in the other thread, shipping containers are indeed almost free - no shipping company wants to ship empty containers back to China, as they lose money doing it. So China continues to pump out new containers... I think they run about $2,000 a pop for a 40 footer.

They produced about 1 million TEUs a year in 2000, and will hit 5.8 million TEUs for 2007...
