Semi Trailer Trucking News USA: Coronavirus Strains Grocery and Supply Chains

Coronavirus impact on trucking and supply chains

Supply chains in the USA are strained as are freight, logistics, food delivery and semi trucking businesses. Star Trailer Sales is a national distributor with new and used semi trailers for sale in the USA.

NORTH MANKATO, MN (USA) — Food supplies and, for fear of a mass lockdown quarantine in the United States, toilet paper and other essential consumer goods have become scarce on store shelves. This is due to a consumer panic that has set in, putting strain on suppliers and distributors to keep products on the shelf at stores. Box truck drivers, van semi trailer drivers and even smaller truck and trailer combo route drivers are now responding to the panic at the grocery, convenience and retail stores that carry food and toilet paper in the USA.

Many stores in the Twin Cities, for example, have seen runs on food like bread, tortillas, hand sanitizer, disinfectant, cleaning supplies, canned goods, dry goods, etc. There have been reports of customers buying entire pallets to hoard at their homes. Then there is the travel ban, stock market sell off and supply chain disruption globally to contend with.

Van Semi Trailer Drivers Running Freight Respond to Panic

For van semi trailer drivers delivering freight and the logistics and delivery companies that manage entire fleets, the panic has tested the strength and response of U.S. supply chains. Suppliers and trucking companies as well as individual owner-operators are feeling the crunch. As people flock to stores to keep buying, suppliers are forced to bump their orders up and try to predict what might follow. A route relief specialist in Minnesota said the situation looks good from a temporary sales perspective but he remains unsure of what’s next.

“This looks great for sales right now, but we know it’s just a phenomenon of the panic,” he said. “What happens next, though? We can’t predict right now. If there is a national shut down like in Europe, suppliers will be feeling it for sure.”

Refrigerated Semi Trailer for Sale

There may be a need for refrigerated semi trailer use among many companies on an increasing basis.Delivery needs for homes, businesses and hospitals may need more developed plans during a crisis like this or those that come in the future due to global trade and travel. Finding a refrigerated semi trailer for sale in the USA might be a top priority if supply chains call for drastic measures.
