Truckers Wary of New York Deliveries Create Headache for Grocers
This is an important story because it illustrates how vulnerable big cities are. If supplies can’t (or won’t) come in there are going to be big problems in short order. This will then encourage even more draconian responses from politicians.
A March 25 report from the Supply Chain Analysis Network, a state of the industry report compiled by experts in the field, noted a “particular concern related to the grocery supply chain serving the City of New York.” While the report said “the grocery supply chain should be able to sustain and enhance flows,” it found that truckers “have been much more likely to reject offers to deliver” to the New York metropolitan area.
