How is this affecting or going to affect your day to day? 

We will likely no longer be able to recover as easily from errors/mispicks/etc. Or do favors by throwing product in our vehicles to deliver. 

In a way, as a rep, it'll be nice to not be running around on all that stuff.... especially a Friday afternoon or weekend! But, it's definitely a loss on level of customer service.

Hopefully your company will have a plan in place, such as Hot Shot vehicles with extra drivers for service errors, and being open to Off Day's.  You have to hold your ground because Ops and Trans will push back.  Trust me, after a few months, you will love the fact that you are no longer hauling groceries.

They're already pretty flexible so I think we'll still be able to make some things happen, but being able to meet a truck or will call and drive something to their door has always been a BIG plus. 

We will see what happens.

TMs and AEs at US Foods divisions in California can no longer put anything, except samples, in our cars. This is the fallout from the Sysco scandal in Northern California. See KRON San Francisco on You Tube.

Each division has several hot shot vans. They typically go out twice a day. TMs and AEs have to requisition a hot shot van to take out a will call.

Frankly as far as food safety  is concerned this should have happened years ago for chilled and frozen products

I wonder which lobbyists were involved with this ACT. 

Apparently we may still be able to recover errors or favors if we temp our items every hour. So theoretically if you are less than 1 hour from truck or warehouse to door it might still be ok????
