Travel history

I have a new iPad.  A big one.

What’s amazing to me is that this iPad, monogrammed with my name, left the factory in Shenzhen, China on Wednesday morning (local China time), went through Hong Kong that evening, and then was in Memphis at 12.30 a.m. Thursday morning. Less than three hours later, that iPad was through Customs. And less than 9 hours later after arriving in the USA, that iPad is on the truck for delivery, and was in fact delivered to my office mail depot just after 10 a.m.

Commerce in this century, in integrated supply chains, is a wonder indeed!
