CNN – The number of soft drinks containers found on U.N. vessels during its 2016 annual inspection is more than double the number reported during the previous inspection, the U,N.
A total of 10,848 containers of soft beverages and soft drink containers were found, according to the report.
That’s the same number that were found during the 2015 inspection.
During the 2015, the report said, 7,076 containers were identified by the U.,N.
and the International Maritime Bureau as potentially containing contraband.
The new report, however, noted that the number of containers identified as containing contrasible substances has increased significantly over the past three years.
It also said the number may have dropped slightly in 2016 due to an increase in the number that are identified as contraband, which are the containers with the label of an illegal substance, the UN report said.
The report found that the U.’s total container inventory, which includes soft drinks, soft drinks water and other beverages, is currently estimated at 1,823,200 tons, or 8.1 percent of the world’s total container cargo.
The number of container ships with illegal contraband on board has risen from 3,000 to 6,000 since 2016.
