IE, SODA or cement. can these things be instrumentalities of commerce? since they can be carried through states, do they count?

or does it have to be something that generally moves ie people, trucks, etc?

input would be appreciated

This mixes both channels and instrumentalities of commerce, but both are covered (though they are technically distinct categories).
