Here's one for the logistics specialists among you.

How do you do just in time manufacturing and shipping when your manufacturing is happening in Asia and the Far East, but your customers are in Europe and America?

Are we stuck with the current systems of having large numbers of middlemen involved in getting the goods in bulk from China to distributors and then retailers in the US?

It seems to me that there's a huge prize for anyone who can work out how to cut the middlemen out and ship direct from the manufacturer to the customer's door. [from: JB Ecademy]
