I'm guessing you meant Dairy? I'm in that industry as well. Sort of. One of the "essentials" that have to keep working. Job security anyway!

I live about a half a mile away from a Wal-Mart distribution center...
The only issue I have with trucks is the drivers only going 30mph back to the highway.

I can forgive from the highway to the warehouse thinking they don't know where they are going but heading back to the highway is bull.

Anyway.. My friend and his wife are owner operators and they are staying busy.

Yes. I also got a letter from my job in case cops stop me during curfew hours.

What people should look into is there a lot of freezers being sold to store all this stuff. No food shortage just too many idiots.

The wifes store is busy and they have asked some people not to come back because they buy all of the TP or sanitizes and they limit sales to 2 of each now. Some people are freaking out that they limit because there is a SHORTAGE!! No shortage just too many idiots.

People are being stupid with food

Dry goods will run low we dont have a high demand for it so it will take longer to replenish

But perishable foods will come back as soon as people stop buying them and use what they have

It's all going to rot people are buying carts full of goods with a 2 week shelf life I seriously doubt any of them have a vacuum sealer gallons of vinegar lbs of salt and sodium nitrate without that fresh food is compost in 2 weeks

I hope for the idiots sake they never have to cook there rice and beans that's a hard dish to get down without salt and oil

Finland is 80% self sufficient of food, so most likely what will be hard to get some point is rice, coffee and cocoa, also fruits from southern Europe.
So gladly we have a lot food production here, Sweden is only 50% self sufficient and has already asked our help cos they are running out of food... we are living sad times :/

I used to hate meat loads from the plants. You could end up sitting there for hours, and no matter what you did, that smell permeated your truck. It usually took hours to get it out. And despite multiple messages to all the drivers about reefer fuel levels, you always got at least one trailer at a quarter tank, and the nearest place for fuel was 40-50 miles away. A quarter tank is plenty to go that far, but it didn't stop you from sweating and keeping one eye glued to the reefer light on the front of the trailer.

A large part of the problem is a shortage of drivers.

I work in logistics and a lot of drivers want to stay home now.


I hope we can solve that problem. I mean, in my business drivers never touch the loads. They just sit and wait. So there's not much risk except for the fact that, also, a lot of the rest stops are being closed. Ridiculous.

They can't work if they can't sleep/eat.

That's why since we move furnishing, fixtures and electronics we always have a little thing on our BOL saying 'no reefers to be used at any stage of transit'

Honey why does this sofa smell like fish?

It's not so bad in the trailer, but I don't blame you. We've had some interesting loads in our trailers.

No, not rotten, just weird. Things like 2,000 lb bags of clay, bulk carrots (which I still thank God I didn't have to clean), aircraft oxygen bottles....
