In the term “Freight All Kinds,” the “All” is all-inclusive, and that encompasses illegal freight. On today’s episode, we’re talking crystal meth, Aunt Crissy, Tina, crank, speed, shards, ice, go, whizz, tweak, dope or uppers. No matter what you call it, we’re getting into the dirty business of smuggling crystal as we’re breaking down breaking bad Down Under.
FreightWaves Australian correspondent Jim Wilson joins us today to talk his Freight All Kinds article available now on FreightWaves.com. It’s titled Asian Crime Gangs Freight Huge Volumes of Meth Around the Globe. Australia happens to be a prime landing point for, as some truckers call it, high-speed chicken feed. In fact we’re talking to Jim just as a million-dollar shipment of crystal meth was found in the most novel of freight — an air cargo consignment of snow globes. That Santa Claus came to town faster the ever.
