    That's their storage facility (persumably near their manufacturing factory).
    Mine came from there too. Funny story? Friends of mine in Taiwan explained me the shipping route for their order:
    Kunshan Cn -> few middle places in Cn -> Alaska USA -> Utah USA -> Seattle USA -> Hong Kong (Cn/HK) -> Taiwan

    Great trip around the world

    I can't imagine how it is better to ship units individually from China rather than bring a shipping container here and ship them domestically. I guess they're in a bind and need to get shipments out to avoid disgruntled buyers. They're severely backordered and it seems that they didn't plan well. They must have thought the Touch was going to receive the same lackluster approval as the iPhone.

    Well if they are coming from China its like half way around the world so it has to go a couple places in the middle.
