LOGISTICS GONE MAD, OR MANIPULATION
A few months back I ordered some goods from a German company, unfortunately with this bat virus causing chaos everywhere, the German company was waiting for suppliers to deliver goods to them. My order got put back several times, until finally two weeks ago, I received an email from the company stating my goods are ready to be shipped by DHL.
I was tracking the goods from the departure in Germany for a few days, then I saw my goods had arrived at the transit country. I was expecting the transit country to be Poland, imagine my surprise when I saw the transit country was Moskva. Of course this got me thinking, why the fuck would they use Muscovy as a transit country, when the logical route, and the cheapest, is through Poland? I might be wrong on this, but to my way of thinking, this has all to do with import/export figures. Are Muscovy and the Germans manipulating the figures to make it look like the Ukraine/Muscovy trade is more than it actually is.
Luckily for me, my goods have now left the Mafia state. I will be interested to know why my goods have taken this roundabout route, and will ask DHL when I pick them up from the local DHL distribution centre.
