Consider the things you use every day — your appliances, car, computer, household products, and more — do you ever stop to think about how they made their way to you?
All goods at one time or another began in production, were stored before being shipped, then were transported to the location at which you purchased them. Or, perhaps they were sent directly to your doorstep. In recent years, we’ve grown accustomed to seeing some of the transportation and shipping processes up-close with more frequent home deliveries of various items.
