I think he owns the rails now.
to take me to the VA. Waiting for clearance to go to L.A. is a freight of mostly intermodal boxes, to be attached to Peterbilts or stacked on outbound ships.. Everyone I see is Yang Ming, China Shipping and such. Red ones and blue ones. No one told the cars there's a war on.
Just now an inbound, ultimately for Chicago. All were Swift, J.B. Hunt and the like. One could make the case that the westbound is deadheading empties on their way to China. But I doubt it. Just your usual international moneymaking, of the kind that governments can't keep their hands off.
Just noticed. The intermodals are almost all 53 footers, the standard for US highways. For the shipboard end they're labeled 'Stack limit 2 high'. Today I see '3 high', all of which are visibly newer. That means tech has moved in to something as basic as rail. Something gives them 33% bigger footprint on the ships.
