Point A to B: This Hidden Camera Video Shows the Life of a Package

April 12, 2013

Maybe (OK probably) it's just me, but I've always been fascinated by the shipping industry. If you think about it (and I do), it affects nearly every aspect of our lives, yet the complicated web of logistics, machines, jobs and energy it takes to move all our stuff from point A to B is a mystery to most of us. How did that avocado arrive in my Brooklyn bodega? How did my Macbook get here from China? 

This great video, posted today on Motherboard, offers a glimpse into that world, thanks to hidden cameras filming the process step by step.  
 
And if that sparks your curiosity, lucky for you GOOD created an infographic on global shipping logistics back in 2011. Check it out below, or brose out this Pinterest board for many more visuals on the subject.
