Red Containers missing when creating a new character on a different ship

My friends and I where on ship two and had collected several red containers including the rare armors. Then we found out a friend was already established on another ship; So we decided to make new characters on that ship. The issue we noticed right away was that all red containers we had collected on the other character on the other ship where gone. Is this a known issue/is it intentional so you have to pay to transfer?

@nightnday red boxes are account bound, so it’s intentional.
