We investigate the electron transport through Coulomb blockaded structures hosting Majorana bound states (MBS). In particular we are interested in higher-order processes beyond local and crossed Andreev reflection. A nanowire in the topologically non-trivial regime hosts a pair of MBSs, one localized on each end of the wire. In more complex wire structures, for example wire junctions, MBSs can manifest themselves at the edges as well as at crossing points. This gives rise to transport processes that are not observed in simple nanowires. We present a general way of how the different transport processes can be obtained and understood by using a master equation where the tunneling Hamiltonian is taken into account perturbatively.
