Difficulty in obtaining year on year container traffic data for trade around the world

Just a short note on my observations of the difficulty of obtaining year on year container traffic data of container ports around the world through the Internet. Specifically, I was trying to understand if there could be a reduction in container traffic at ports around the world, for example, after a restructuring of the world’s economy towards reduced production of manufactured goods in China and India. In essence, onshoring, the shifting of production facilities back to advanced countries could reduce world trade.
