With all these measures being taken; for better or worse, one begs the question.
What will happen to the supply chain for most of America and the world if this crisis continues on its current path?
I work in receiving at a Costco, have been checking the depots daily, and looking for anomalies in the system.
As of last Wednesday it was steady, and our GIANT freezer and cooler used to store food and produce is mostly empty except for essentials.
When we get a shipment of cold products it’s called a “wet” load and anything else is a “dry” load.. we usually at my location get 4-8 trucks a day. And the pallet count on each is roughly between 53-80; however I’ve noticed more and more these shipments turn to 30-50 pallets and we are no longer receiving any “unnecessary” items.....
I will continue to update the members here but these are some links to the current Farm/ Produce business and the troubles they will surely face with this lockdown scenario...
Labor and food shortage
Labor shortage due to migrant workers not being allowed to harvest
Food shortage due to lack of labor
Anyone in the industry have any thoughts???

Well if there's a "food crisis" on the horizon, why would Walmart be hiring 150,000 jobs?
Walmart, Dollar Tree and 7-Eleven want to hire nearly 200,000 workers as the coronavirus pandemic continues
