“Everything’s different right now,” Steven said. “Normally, a machine like this breaks, they order another one from China, no big deal. But now you can order that machine from China all you want – who knows when it’s going to get here? They can’t wait. You’ve got to do some creative thinking. The machine breaks in California, we’ve got one maybe we’re not using as much over here in Boston, we’ll just ship it cross-country and put it into production where it makes the most sense.”
He laughed. “And guess who they put in charge of coordinating that? Yours truly. Guess what? I have no idea how you ship a 22,000 pound piece of machinery. I asked our regular delivery guy, and he laughed at me. “Good luck with that”, he said. So here I am at Boston Pack and Ship, because I need expert assistance.”
