When I shoot images of a big port, with the cargo of the ships (= lots of containers) in view, I painstakingly remove every ship name and every logo/brandname from the containers.  That is such a boring job that I don't have many "industrial" images in my portfolio.  But yesterday I was browsing the Adobe library and I found lots of images of big ports, flooded with brand names.  Like hundreds of containers with the MSC logo on it.  And yes, these were commercial licenses, not editorial. 
Did I miss something?  OK, these logos are small, because it's hundreds of containers in 1 image, but still, it is possible to read the logos as they are not blurred at all.
So what do you do with your industrial photos full of small logos?  Just NOT shoot them, spend HOURS/DAYS removing logos, or just submit as they are and keep your fingers crossed?

I remove them. Maybe the photos you have found are old but I can't get anything through with the big agencies if there is a logo or company name on anything (as commercial).

And then you hope they don't reject it for something else :)

Remove logos. I've gotten much faster the more I've done work like that :)

Some shots might slip by, but if I'm going to bother to edit a shot, I want it to be accepted anywhere, not just the agencies with bad AI reviews or a bleary-eyed human trying to meet their quotas...

You're right of course, but 1 modern container ship can carry between 6000 and 20000 containers, so if I say hundreds of logos, I'm really not exaggerating.  Removing them one by one is booooooooring ...

depends - i'll remove if only a few, but for containers, i'll submit as editorial - while AS doesn't accept editorial, they're more liberal in what's commercial

iStock / Getty accept cityscapes with multiple logos that aren't too dominant. You'll need at least 5 different ones in a scene I would guess.

Remove the logos in the simplest/dirtiest way possible. Why bother for pennies? I usually just paint with color over the logos (much faster than cloning) and the agencies accept the photos
