What's the damage at the OpCos?  Have they furloughed more than 40% yet?

Some good people are being let go across the country.  I just spoke with a friend of mine in Seattle who got their walking papers.  Sad times

From an operations perspective think of it as hub and spoke. Using FL for example (JAX/ORL/TPA/MIA) they could potentially shut down MIA/JAX shipping out of 1-2 facilities in central FL and direct inbound loads into the redistribution center in Alachua to lower freight bills. There are plenty of drivers to shuttle/handoff trailers. I hope it doesn't get to that point, but if this down cycle lasts the way it's looking anything is possible.

Every time I get a video conference invite. I get nervous... this is horrible. My group chats are nothing but negativity. Hope we pull through quick.

Sales is definitely on the chopping block. People have become more comfortable buying online. Permanent not furlough. The highest paid are the prime targets.

The shutdown is giving Sysco and USF an excuse to cut the sales force to bare bones. Each remaining TM and MA will have 75-100 accounts who will mostly order online. Small accounts (under $1,500 a week) will be politely, but forcefully, told to go elsewhere.

USF-So Cal could shut down Corona and San Diego and ship everything from La Mirada.

Heard from my PFG rep it was happening at PFG as well. When business picks back up, and it will eventually, I feel all companies will be hurting because they cut to much.

They want everyone to order online, anyway. The virus is just a convenient excuse to pare down the sales force. This is a win/win for the companies. Short end of the stick for sales reps.
