During my flight home from Oklahoma City a couple weeks ago we took a route over the Newark Intermodal center. These facilities have always fascinated me. From the size of the container-movers to the capacity of the ships to the duration of their voyage(s), the logistics of getting something from China to New York just seem…impossible.
But more than that, it’s just insane how much physical stuff is being shipped around on a daily basis.
Made me think of the Port of Los Angeles.
We have really gone nuts with the consumption, haven’t we?
