Band-Aid Brand Brazil
One way of transportation from Brazil to the U.S is by Boat. The potential problems with this way of transport is that it takes a very long time and it costs money for fuel, which can be a very big factor to the U.S when they are trying to pay for both the supplies and the transportation. However since the brand is manufactured in Brazil it is cheap to buy the goods because of how cheap it is to make and pay workers.
Another way to transport good is by train, this is another very time consuming way of transportation, the exhaust from the train is very harmful and pollutant to the environment which can cause conflict from some cultures and also cause the environment to die.
A solution to transportation by boat is that since the cost to buy the Band-Aids is so cheap, we didn't have to spend much money on the goods, in the U.S we can sell the Band-Aids for twice the amount that it took to make the product so that way half the money goes to the business while the other half goes towards the cost it took to ship the product over.
There is a solution to transporting by train. A train that carries goods from one place to another is called a freight train. A freight train is one of the most fuel efficient ways of transport that you could imagine. The train runs on diesel fuel and 1 gallon = 480 miles. So clearly the best way of transportation is definitely train because if the U.S is paying for the fuel to send the products to the U.S, they wouldn't be spending very much money.
