So, you want to move a huge quantity of cocaine. Like, not just a few kilos. We're talking HUGE, as in quantities large enough to be measured in metric tons. That's right, tons. One metric ton equals 1,000 kilograms. That approximately 2,200 pounds (2,204.62 pounds to be exact).
One metric ton (mt) is actually the smallest quantity you can move in the strategy game known as GoCaine. Quantities go up from there, all the way to 12 mt or more. As you'll see though, those larger shipments entail considerable risk. In a future post we'll talk about the risk of interdiction, but right now lets just focus on the transportation mechanics. That is what this post is all about--how to move your coke! How to get from A to B to C, how to move it from Andean supply centers, through transit zones and get it to the lucrative northern markets where you can sell it at a very profitable price.
