The January 11 2008 New York Times had an interesting article about a tiny cargo on a gigantic ship.
A 75-pound cargo valued at $10 million triggered action by the fast gray boat in the foreground. Can you guess what it is? Clue: It ain’t sludge.
Read the Times article here. The above is not the cargo ship in question, but can you imagine searching for 75 pound of cargo on such a gargantuan vessel? Or searching at night?
