Location swap allows the change of claim to the assets manifested in the form of a token with no effect on other attributes.
The physical goods (the "asset-backing") are not affected by the swap; they stay where they are. Only the claim to these assets manifested in the form of a token changes hands. A location swap makes sense in a global economy where it can cut transportation costs and avoid product shortages by better utilizing goods that are already at the target location, but not needed immediately by their current owner.
The Suez Canal blockage of 2021 saw global trade taking a hit of up to $6bn to $10bn, and highlighted the tight scheduling, interconnectedness, and international reliance on global supply chains. In a token economy, a location swap of goods that are already in a warehouse, but not needed in the short term, can be easily done with the goods in transit at a premium. If the premium is lower than the risk of running out of goods, for example, raw materials in a production line, then both parties of the location swap will profit.
