It's on-board the container vessel MOL Contribution. If you like to track Wheels of Time goods on-board this vessel, go here: vessel tracking: AIS Marine Traffic.  You want to type in, for instance, MOL Contribution and then click on the vessel's name for it's location.

If you are into transit systems including commuter rail, you can track the trains, subways & buses real time with really nice maps of the rail lines including the number of tracks and sidings. It takes a while for it to load up.  You can move the map around to see currently 72 different transit systems around the world.  Below are a screen shots of San Jose Caltrain and the other Penn Station NYC.
