Ever wondered how your shipment gets from A to B? Hundreds of miles of automated conveyer belts Spark shared this video on Youtube!
editor’s note: we happen to use DHL as our international carrier, the video is not sponsored (it seems?) on Spark’s channel, and we’re in no way compensated to post this, it was cool to see this sorta DHL-documentary about one of our ways to ship and that is why we are posting it.
DHL delivers thousands and thousands of packages in a day across the world. Take a look as this series takes you behind the scene of the logistics of these deliveries, including how a paper-making machine can to shipped from New Zealand to Tanzania in 3 days, how DHL handles international urgent deliveries to Wall Street in the US, and the journey of an e-commerce package go through from the UK all the way to Australia.
