Nearly everything is transported by sea. Sometimes on trains I play a numbers game. The game is to reckon how many clothes and possessions and how much food has been transported by ship. The beads around the woman’s neck; the man’s iPhone.
Apple is actually Cathay Pacific’s largest freight customer……you just do not ship something weighing a few hundred grammes and worth $600 by sea.
A container load of iPhones would be worth well over $20 million. You stick them in airplanes, not ships.
