Russian term or phrase: эвакуация порожних контейнеров
"Снижается рост объемов эвакуации порожняка и с ним экспорт". Контекст: для России характерен контраст между большими объемами груженого импорта и низкими объемами груженого экспорта. Уходит много пустых экспортных контейнеров. Но термин "эвакуация" (с терминала) остается непонятным. По принципу "тупого" буквального перевода нашлось незначительное количество примеров на "container evacuation," но все из русских или индийских источников. Что это за явление и как перевести?

removal of empty containers/empties

"эвакуация порожних контейнеров" означает переизбыток контейнеров, возникший в связи с дисбалансом импорта и экспорта. Пустые контейнеры необходимо куда-то вывезти.

Правильно будет REPOSITIONING
Shipping lines in a struggle to overcome the equipment shortage began repositioning empty containers from areas with surplus, such as the U.S. and Europe, to areas with shortage, primarily in Asia, spending about $1,000 for each container. Currently, it is reported that intensive manufacturing of containers in China, in combination with a slack in trade increase and the massive repositioning of empties has led to a surplus container stock in China.To accommodate trade and maintain the efficiencies that currently exist in the freight transportation and logistics industry, temporary storage of empty containers is inevitable. Movement and storage of empty intermodal containers, which are part of the operating procedures but are often described as inefficiencies of the freight transportation system, cost the industry billions of dollars each year and have raised environmental, social and economic concerns.
