Re: How Do They Do It?
The trains don't move by themselves and they don't carry product for free. You don't need high tech gadgets to track a train car worth six figures with often with another six to seven figures of materials inside. There are already a ton of people whose jobs it is to route, plan, and execute those shipments. There are 108,000 people in the United States working as logisticians according to the BLS.
Deciding how, when, and where to send things via rail, truck, air, etc is fairly complex. Its not like they just release them into the wild and then try to look for them a year down the line.
