“AirTags Expose Dodgy Postal Industry”

Last year, YouTuber MegaLag tried to send several AirTag-ged packages from Germany to North Korea with DHL. But instead of arriving there, they were either misrouted to South Korea or ended up in China. In a new video, he further researches the reasons and also takes a look at DHL’s sorting center in Frankfurt at their invitation. Very interesting!

Spoiler: The misdirections likely result from the fact that many packages are still sorted manually. The resulting environmental impact (when a parcel ends up in Australia instead of Austria, for example) is of course anything but nice.
