Maybe its not a food shortage quite like we think.

If the food can't be delivered it is still a food shortage.

As many laws and regulations that are in the way of becoming a truck driver in the first place, I'm not surprised.

This food problem seems WalMart specific.
And I think they use their own trucks and don't outsource their trucking nor their warehouses.

Problem must be with the contracts between WalMart and the other parties involved. WalMart doesn't want their shareholders to know of their problems, so they're trying to divert attention elsewhere.

Re: Maybe this is why the Walmart stores have empty shelves.
come on,i said it a few days ago,itz the new aldi stores.wm lost half its customers,so wm doesnt stock as much.thus empty shelf space,happenned in my town.the second week aldi was open,wm shelves were getting bare.its nature of business,dont create panic.are they suppose to overstock perishables just to look like its nothing?
why waste time stocking unsaleables?
they built the stores for double the customers they have now.thus empty shelf space.
the mob had moved into some as security.so the mob is taking a hit.the mob deserves it.they abused their power.i got buzzed four times in a row by bad cops working security.
security is how the mob worms its way in.
they basically tell the manager,hire us or we rob the store until its financially broke.well now its broke.

Re: Maybe this is why the Walmart stores have empty shelves.
I was at a Walmart Superstore in Michigan a couple of hours ago and the entire pasta aisle was empty. There was a sign on the shelves that said Walmart was experiencing shortages due to warehouse issues or something to that effect. It was every manufacturer of pasta they carry including their store brand. That's what makes me think.

Yeah, but notice it's just WalMart?
Locally, the Fred Meyers (Krogers) Albertsons and Safeway are just fine.
This 'food shortage' is WalMart specific: Obviously having issues within the company, and they're being hush-hush about it as to not scare off their shareholders.

Re: Maybe this is why the Walmart stores have empty shelves.
pasta is a long term storage item so may be bunker supply hit the factory hard and they werent prepared.
thing is we are always told the storage facility is prepared for glitches.
this is bullshit.usa food reserves should be full and rotated,we should NEVER see a glitch!
theres a reason we have that hub in missouri.it needs to be properly managed.
