Every day millions of tons of goods are moved around the globe: by ship, plane, truck or train. In order to cope with this volume huge transporters are used from time to time. Checker Can is able to watch as one of the largest transport aircraft in the world is loaded in Hamburg: even the wings of the aircraft "Beluga" have storage space. However, not every product reaches its destination by air: Checker Can also accompanies transports with a steam locomotive and a truck. What's being carried via means of technology nowadays used to be carried by animals like donkeys. And they can carry a great many things as Checker Can learns in the Eselgarten in Augsburg.
