Im pretty sure the 'series of tubes' theory is old news.
European protocol vs. US protocol. There's a small delay every time the tubes empty into the trucks, or the trucks have to pull up to the tubes. They're working on a standard system of conveyor belts, but the information keeps falling off and getting lost (sort of like airline baggage).
