The US ag sector is preparing for another blow to its supply chain as the potential for strikes at railways and ports are becoming a reality.
Mike Steenhoek with the Soy Transportation Coalition says a railroad strike could disrupt shipments of grain and inputs. “Being able to get product to our customers whether they are domestic or international, are key customers for soybeans and soybean meal area actual animals. Animals need feed. Having any kind of disruption to that for a long period of time will raise a concern for us because it impacts our profitability.”
This is the latest in a string of supply chain issues farmers have been dealing with since the coronavirus pandemic.
