well that headline is the complete opposite of the facts contained in the story?

"With the extra speed comes a price that’s as much as double the cost of standard transpacific service, which is already skyrocketing because the world’s biggest shipping companies have scaled back capacity by about 25% this quarter and may cut it 10% in the third quarter, according to industry observers. "

When I speed :roll: read it, this was something that caught my attention....

”Haifa, Israel-based Zim Integrated Shipping Services Ltd., which operates the Melina, Honolulu-based Matson Inc. and CMA CGM SA of France are among those offering the express service between China and the U.S. — the kind of links that show the difficulty President Donald Trump faces to achieve a “complete decoupling” of the world’s largest economies and bringing production back home.”

The Chinks put a fitness watch on my doorstep in 2 weeks. For six dollars total. Doubling the shipping cost might maybe make that eight dollars. But it would only take a week to get here.
