An ant driven logistic center
DB schenker warehouse (21th century)
The spiritual community counts hundreds of small to medium sized towns stretching the Himalayas. There is not much infrastructure, no roads, airports or VacTube connections. The residents remain in their homes for the most of their life.
They get help from formicid bots. Ant robots used to move goods from one city to another. Imported products are delivered at the warehouses. Products get stocked till they end up in the marketplace on the upper floor.
