Uncle Intel, largest cold/frozen storage operation in the US has had systems completely shut down
I won't name the specific company, but they have 250+ sites across the country specializing in refrigerated and frozen storage and shipping. All sites systems are down and they've shut their gates so trucks can no longer enter to pickup product. I know this because I'm the supply chain director for a food company that sells refrigerated dairy products. We use this company as a third party logistics supplier and I'm completely unable to ship Thangsgiving orders from any of their sites across the country. I've got a rough day ahead of me workwise to figure out to mitigate any of this.

Be vigilant.

I think they likely are going to secure vaccines for distribution but I would imagine that it wouldn't require such a huge operation storage facility that would be nuts.

But maybe? Moderna said theirs can be held in storage for 30 days stable.

I see a name on the freezers in the picture, could this be the one?

States are panic buying powerful deep freezers to store the COVID vaccine at -94F after Pfizer announced their trial had been successful

Why not name the company so we can validate ? Oh...that’s why, we would be able to confirm or deny, and it wouldn’t align with your story. Apparently you don’t have too busy a day since you posted here instead of mitigation huh ?

Highly probable scenario as many companies are struggling to keep their doors open during the pandemic. They could be the suppliers of the restaurant industry as well as groceries but without the supply demands of the restaurant industry they are unable to pay their bills nor meet payroll demands.

This type of sudden shutdown is usually required during bankruptcy filings or going out of business period. But of course we don’t know because you will not give the name and instead choose to spread doom and gloom without any verification, fake news is born in this manner

Is it being commandeered so that they can use it for vaccine shipment given it has to be kept nearly 100 degrees below 0?

One reefer truck can store millions of doses at that temperature for months or even years as long as you keep it fueled. No need for powerful deep freezers as reefers are everywhere and many empty

That was my first thought when I saw the thread title.

Seems excessive though considering it's not even shipping yet and will be months before they need a large network to distribute it.

All we would have to do is call Americold and try to set an appt. I bet its got alot to do with vaccine storage and why let a crisis go to waste? If those orders cant be delivered and picked up, that's going to be catastrophic.
