Coronavirus Adds Stress to Food Supply Chain
While controversy surrounds the question whether there is an actual shortage of truck drivers, many companies are struggling to find long-haul truckers, drivers who can be away from home for days and weeks at a time. That makes it harder to move food over long distances. Now, with the outbreak of COVID-19, you can add to that an element of uncertainty in the food supply chain. No one is really sure when the situation will begin to stabilize, and food stockpiling is only adding pressure.
The rapid global spread of COVID-19 means few answers and lots of uncertainty across all industries, unfortunately, and that includes food production.
