Logistics has made Amazon Amazon and railways indeed – is a low hanging fruit…
Currently, the low price infrastructure, the railway… is Bottleneck.
Technicalities plaguing Industry and clients, with sudden, unplanned stops, for “maintenance”, etc., decisively has to be outed!
An upgrading, within planned reinvestments, etc., hereby is suggested!
70 kip, safely allowed axial load, shall be the min. provided for, etc. Quality pays – and within transports, in particular!

Perhaps Amazon sees the vast amount of low-cost excess capacity in track systems as a path to critical mass, taking advantage of line-balancing designs. They can take it over the top by linking “Trunk” & “City-Feeder” track with endless road “Feeder” vehicles & endless high-speed transit points for optimal time/place utility.
Required: Standardized “Feeder-Roll” carts with (RFID/IoT/AI) options for unmatched connectivity. Example test: Orion High-Speed Logistics, UK, for one.
