My iPad is a traveler

Just looking at the shipping notification, here are the places it has been

  • SHENZHEN CN
  • LANTAU ISLAND HK
  • CHEK LAP KOK HK
  • ANCHORAGE, AK
  • MEMPHIS, TN
  • LOS ANGELES, CA
  • IRVINE, CA

I don’t know too much about logistics but it seems odd that it has to go to Alaska, then Memphis, and back to the west coast. ¬†Why isn’t there a main center on the West Coast?
